Question 6" rod small block chevy engine

I have done a search of the site (to the best of my limited ability)and was unable to find sufficent information on the advantages of a 6" rod engine. I have been told there is a significant increase in torque and fuel milage when 6" rods are used. Other info I have found indicates the exact opposite. The way it was explained to meis as follows: longer rod= piston stays at tdc longer and provides longer burn time hence more torque and a higher efficency of operation. I would assume the wristpin would need to be higher in the piston and displacement would not be changed. If anyone has any info or a link to such info it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
