Rod length does NOT affect static compression ratio,Blazin72 said:70,
Of course using something other than a 5.7" rod will change it too.
You're saying that if he went from a 5.7" rod to, say, a 5.565" rod he's not going to have any change in compression? If he uses the same piston with a shorter rod it's going to send his compression through the floor.xntrik said:Rod length does NOT affect static compression ratio,
Yes, if you were to use a shorter rod you would have to use a piston with a higher compression height. If you used a longer rod you would need one with a shorter compression height. Or like you said, a piston with the pin higher or lower on the piston.70ChvyNova said:If you changed the rod length then you would have to have your pin in your piston set different right?
That I agree with. If this is in fact what he meant then he should clarify that. Just going out and saying it won't change anything can be misleading.GMC boogie said:I think what xntrik was trying to say was...wether you use a -6cc flat top piston with a 1.56 comp height for a 5.7 rod or a -6cc flat top piston with a 1.26 comp height for a 6 inch rod the CR will be the same.
