Default Chevy rods in a Redblock ?

Currently pondering the idea of a Chevy rod in a b230. The only issue is that the big end bore isn't exactly the same. The two main Chevy sizes are 2 in and 2.1 in where I think our bore falls slightly in between.

Has anyone looked into this or have any ideas. Otherwise I'd have to either stay 13mm or look for some aftermarket stuff

The above are OK...but are you looking to do 8v_? 16v? Turbo? What compression...
I just happen to have some CP Pistons forged flat-top 96.5 pistons for stock rod length--152mm..
16v valve reliefs.......is that interesting???
