right, i understand that. but considering we have understroked (over bored) engines from factory, it will be really interesting to see what happens when you stroke it this much.

with all due respect (and i really dont wanna come off snobby, thats not my intention) why the heck would you say that? what i am doing will:
1) not cost any more to do than the 72/74 combo
2) have a lot more displacement to play with
3) assuming it works, it will help people see another option with their engine
everyone talks about the build im doing, how many have actually done it? i know of 2, nelson and italo grasso... both of which make insane power. why would i not do it? i got a good deal on my turbos, block, and crank. the machine work will cost the same either way i go (more or less) as will the rods and pistons. im not afraid of it being a 74 and not dropping in, it wont be that hard.
thats my thought on it at least. i am legitimately curious if you disagree with that logic
