Re: 5.7 VS. 6" Rods
As said, the two reasons are the better angle, read straighter alignment, of the rod to the crankshaft journal, for transfer of force and less piston scuffing/friction against the cylinder wall.
Your Butt Meter would have to be finely calibrated to feel the difference. Longer rod is great for building a torque monster, but with the added weight of longer rod, rpm is kind of limited, all else being the same, meaning a shorter rod engine will rpm higher.
