We needed to swap out a 5.7 engine for a spare identical short block 6" rod.Actually used the same cam.That 6" rod engine would put on a fender consistently at the top end.Sensitive butt dyno,it just felt faster.We knew John at LPE and I am very sure he believed the worth of long rods.
That was a great article. It almost covers everything that gets me fired up about interent engine builders. long rods and "More area under the curve" type cams. SS valves and refersion of the exhuast. All really interent based issues. for ppl that have to much theroy and not enough dirty finger nails and bloodly knuckles.
Butt Dyno really that is where this technical discussion is over. So your wrong just admit it and make the world a happy place.
