Stay away from a shallow sump 998. It´s not going to make a lot more power than a 996 engine. With the 998 Testastretta you will need a lot of parts. Wiring harness, airbox, fuel injection, exhaust,...

Forget about that engine and buy a better base to start from. It will be very expensive if you´re doing a proper rebuild. On top of that an 853 is just that. Every 916 or 996 with similar specs...

Those should be standard 916 cylinders. Along with the standard 748 crankshaft you have a proper 853cc engine (61.5mm stroke).

Definitely. They don´t make much sense with the 24.5° angle.

Good experiences on my part with the 27mm offset triples and 23.5° steering head angle. But it is not a night and day difference.
