No water problems, just leaking between a couple of cylinders.

Remember back when the Nascar guys were destroking there motors making more power.

Also why do you think Sterling is running that cube, they have people spending $$$.I bet the experimented on a few costumers I would think they figured it by now whats the best combo, again there looking at max hp in a race application and usually have a higher RPM peek hp .I would think The bigger the ci the lower the RPM.

ROB,

What would make you think that they are interested in low maintance intervals and overall motor longevity???????

They are well worth it. They are no trouble if the valve adjustment is done properly.

I would have to disagree with this statement. A square engine verses a oversquare has nothing to do with harmonics. If your having troubles with harmonics get a new engine builder that knows how to balance! If every component is balanced correctly and accurately the engine will have ZERO vibration in it.

That depends on how long of a rod length you choose.

which one would hold up better 572 or 598 both with the same rod length?

Are we taking with a 4.5 stroke on both? If so Both packages are capable to go the same amount of hours if built right. The 572 combo will have a tad better seller between cylinders due to the smaller bore diameter.If your talking supercharged I would go with the smaller bore engine for this reason. The other objective to use a 4.500-4.530 bore diameter is to allow more rebuild life in the engine and again better head gasket seal being SC. I like to build life into the engine instead of maxing out the bore on a brand new Dart Big M or Merlin block. As far as ring seal goes between the two combos, on N/A packages both will hold up the same. SC combo ring seal may go away a tad sooner with the larger bore area 598. A ton of other factors come to play with longevity as you already know.....machining, assembly,and of course tuning!
