Rono. I vaguely recall Ted Eaton indicating in an earlier engine build discussion that in using the longer 292 connecting rods with a 312 stroke crankshaft, there is less frictional loading of the piston against the cylinder walls at the bottom of the piston stroke. Have I recalled that correctly?
IF correct, is that why you used the 292 length rods in you supercharged engine build OR were you simply seeking to use an available production connecting rod that was stronger than the 312 ECZ rods.
Do I recall that you used flat top forged Probe pistons from John Mummert in combination with 5750-471 cylinder heads for your supercharged engine build?
An .063 cut off the tops of your pistons was only about 1/16 of an inch of material removal. That does not sound like a lot of material to remove . . .
Thanks for sharing!
