ive thought about this. probably works fine. If you pull it off let me know. Ive also heard about people reaming out the connecting rods. All of my builds have used new rods and bearings so it wouldnt be a big deal to do that before crank assembly. Im also wondering about compression ratios on these custom motors. I know the pistons have compression ratings, but isn't that for its given purpose? when you mix it with a different crank and head I wonder how accurate the rating still is.
