With a 5500 rpm redline you need to drop your compression to about 9.5:1.
At that rpm level 5.7" stock rods will be better. Over that the long rod is better. There are a lot of threads on rod length- but there's a lot of bad info in them. I suggest you map it all out for yourself and let your reasoning show the way.
