Dwell Time

	My current motor has a stroker crank in it and the guy who built it
used shorter rods 

	rather than using a spacer plate (crank has 68mm stroke vs stock
62.6mm). I'm curious 

	as to what the pros and cons are of the different methods. I can
understand the idea of 

	less dwell time with the shorter rods, but does this really affect
power? Are we talking  

	about tenths of a horsepower less by using the short rods instead of
the long rods or is 

	it more?
