    I believe I have seen a guy using a 6" rod before (www.corral.net), a lot of 408-418 kits use a 4" stroke crank, with 2.10" rod journals this helps with some of the oiling issues a 351W has, they use a 6.125, 6.20, 6.25.

    One issue may be the radius on the rod journal, most stroker cranks have a certain radius that needs to match. What brand is the rod? If your interested in a full kit let me know I can help you... [email protected]
