I am in complete agreementA tall deck hot rod BBC with stock pistons ? You do realize these things are four ring, HEAVY flat top HEAVY cast, terrible, HEAVY . The stockers in trucks had a rev limit of about 3500 rpm and STILL HAD FAILURES,,
Even with the smallst chamber heads the c/r will be less than 8.5 to 1.
have built many of thse engins and the minimum requirement should be a .400 longer rod and a three ring piston. Anything else is a waste of time and money.:spank:
