I just have picked up my 3.8 stage one block saturday and now am looking for a crank and or rods. Is there clearance issues using a 3.59 crank and 6.50 rods? I dont really want to grind the block if possible. Is it better to use on center rods in a off center block? Im starting from scratch so anything goes on the rotating assembly. The block has two steel center caps installed and looks like it can be honed and run standard bore or .010 over. Im looking for parts to handle 700-800hp very reliably. I may not need to run that high of HP but like to over build.
