If you`ll look in the knowledge base on this site you`ll find info about it.
Your gonna get various opinions on this. Smokey Yunicks theory was "use the longest damn connecting rod you can fit in the engine" but there`s another side to this, the intake system has to be up to snuff with the longer rod otherwise they`ll be no gain. many professional racers feel the best rod ratio is 1.8:1.
