I was wondering what, if any, advantages there might be in fitting a 996 crank into a 853 race engine.
I tried the fit and there are a whole lot of small issues to deal with since the piston pokes over the cylinder by about 3mm ..... getting thicker base gaskets laser cut, machining belt rollers down a bit, headers need some mods.

But .... would it be worth it. Slower revs ? more torque ? more top end ?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
