    With your 6.0 rod i would use a 3.75 stroke otherwise your ring pack will need to be to far up on the piston for a blown application.Bill

    Unless you are building a tall deck and then put more stroke into it.
    I am with Bill 3.75 for a std height block.
    Piston design outweighs rod length.
