Default Manley Stroker pistons with OEM STI Rods???

Hey guys, I'm in the middle of a 2.1 stroker build. I ended up getting a great deal on a sti crank and OEM rods. I also bought some ARP Rod bolts to go with the rods. Now, I'm worried... I bought Manley 92.5mm stroker pistons for this build, getting the block bored and honed to match the pistons, but now I'm wondering whether or not the stock STI rods will work for this build. The sti rod lenth is 5.135'' I believe, but the expected rod length on the pistons is 5.137''. Will this be a big problem?? Or am I wrong about the STI rod length?

Actually I think I got the answer. Click this link:

If you convert 130.5mm, which is the length of the rods, it equals out to be 5.13779, which is about 5.137". Anyone else want to add anything, just in case?

You seem to have figured it out, EJ205 and EJ257 rods are the same length.
