Also I now the definitive stroke and con rods length.

Interesting way Vicente. I was thinking about this few years ago. Everything mecanicaly better, you'll also need longer head bolts, longer exhaust manifold..

Dear Franck
No, only need a longer exhaust manifold. The head screws, the cambelt, the oil rail, the head gasket, etc are OE without modify.
This is because the oil rail last design offered more rigity than old design.
In addition to arrive here, you need to make the tests and studies reals and virtuals.
All the best and thanks
Vicente
