You are in the ball park..... the intake may be 9.200"...or your 9.250".

I've seen 9.550" work several times.....sometimes it's 9.600"

depends on the rockerarm, cam, deck and head milling.

You'll have to check it. All of the shaft systems I've done used a shorter rod than the stud mount rockers.
