Yup, those pistons were probably made for a 4.140 stroke with a 6.800 rod.

With a 4.300 stroke and 6.700 rod, the piston will be .020 out of the hole with a 10.300 deck...which is fine, you'll...

Pretty much every aftermarket intake is different, and requires different length bolts. Don't know why they can't just make them the same as stock. Odds are it's the intake's fault, not ARP's.

1800 stall + 5500 redline = non-rpm Performer.

The non-RPM will beat the RPM at all points below 4400 rpm, and match the RPM to 5500 in that combination.
