re: Piston-to-head: what's ideal? What's safe?
I would tend to think Rod design, rod bolts, piston weight, and RPM play a big factor here. I know in my 540 build I will be 0.035. Light pistons, forged I-beam, arp2000 bolts, 5000rpm limit. most likely it would be good for over 5500rpm but I just don't need more rpm's for my build
