Default RE: Pushrod length

You won't know until you measure it. If the block has ever been decked, or the deck height is off slightly from factory spec, or depending on the head gasket you use, what cam bearings and on and on. 2 identical engines may need different pushrod lengths.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!

Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
