I have 6.8 rods in mine.

Why are you staying with a 4.5 bore?

So there are no pro's or con's with either length? Unless someone has a used aftermarket block not willing to just max bore a block.

If you use a D9 or A460 block they have almost 1/4" longer cylinders than the C8/C9/D0/D1 blocks, so the .100" shorter rod is not a factor in that case.
