    Has anyone done this ?What has to be changed to make it work ? What rods and pistons did you use ? What cylinder heads were used ?

    I actually looked into this, and there is a place in California that may be trying it. The short answer is that yes, it will "fit", but require custom pistons (not so much a big deal) and a lot of machining on the ends (a big deal).

    There is a place that does do custom crankshafts that Norwoods uses,

    The reason why is it would give a large increase in stroke.

    When you say alot of machining on the ends you mean the crank ?This is to fit the flywheel or a custom one (I think someone said the bolt pattern had changed ) and to sort out the cam drive and damper . It seems Ferrari omitted the crank damper on the 360 any ideas why ? It only seems to have a pulley .
