Here are some common rod ratios of both stock and stroker kits. Although they are using figures from Coast High Performance (sorry Ken) the numbers are common. When this was published the 331 wasn't as popular as it is now, but the ratio is 1.66 I believe.

Also, someone smarter than I am will have to explain the effects of rod ratios that are less than stock. Read: side loading.
