RE: Crazy Idea No.2

Other things to keep in mind.  The piston skirts on turbo motor pistons have
been clearanced for the oil squirters.  If you were to put NA pistons in a
turbo block, you'll damage either the pistons, or the oil squirters...  You
may also have a problem with valve meeting the piston tops, due to different
shapes and different lift and duration between the NA and turbo cams...

Food to dissuade crazy ideas from becoming crazy actions.
