What rpm is a stock Gen V 454 bottom end good for

Just wondering about the stock bottom end on my gen v 454 . It will have the stock crank, rods, new hyperutectic pistons and of course bearings, and rings. Valve train, cam, intake and carb will let it go to over 6500, but I would like to find a happy medium of arround 6200 rpm. Will the motor hold together at that???

Shawn

I say 6,000 rpm with arp rod bolts and a good balance job. This is just a guess with no science to back it up.

It also makes a difference how often and for how long it goes over 6,000 rpms. A constant 6000 rpm is most likely not a good idea, but short burst past 6,000 should be OK.
