ok, so here's my dilemma. i recently got a good deal on a 383 shortblock($250 and the 350 block has already been machined, new bearings, 400 crank and pistons/rods etc). the reason it was so cheap? the guy somehow thought he could get away with using regular 350 pistons on 5.7 rods. and of course they come slightly above deck height. so i was just going to buy new stroker correct pistons. thing is, the pistons in there now are brand new speed pro aluminum -5cc flat tops and i'm on a tight budget. i heard that you can use stock 400 rods in a stroker and still use regular 350 pistons. i can get a set of balanced re-worked/re-sized 5.565 rods for $50 as apposed to spending $300 on new pistons/rings. i'm not trying to cheap out, but every penny counts. odds are, i'm only going to be using this motor for this summer and build my dream motor over the course of next winter. so i don't want to put too much into it. anybody ever use 5.565 400 style rods in a stroker? what problems might occour. will they need to be cam clearanced? my cam/head setup should peak between 5,500 and 6,000 rpm so i won't be reving it any higher than that. any dangers in using the 5.565 rods?
