We've been discussing a crazy mega stroker Rover V8 on the V8buick forum:

Late Rover block, 96.5mm sleeves taken out to 3.8":

Buick 350 crank: 3.85"
Buick 300 rods: 5.96"
Supercharged 3800 pistons: Comp height: 1.095"

Destroke crank with .030 OS rod bearings to 3.82"

3.8" bore x 3.82" stroke = 346 ci.

3.82/2 + 5.96 + 1.09 = 8.96

Ha ha ha ha... Wooooo... lol.

Somebody has had to try this already though. Anybody know? I might try to get a 350 crank and see what it looks like compared to a 300 crank.

One of these days I'm going to modify this message board software so that it doesn't automatically truncate hyperlinks when they're displayed. It annoys me a lot!

Here's the actual URL for the article Tony referred to: "http://www.britishv8.org/Articles/MonsterMotor.htm"

Here's a working hyperlink to it: [www.britishv8.org]

Sort of but with a Late Rover block. The deckheight is a bit lower at 8.96" where as the 300 block's deckheight is 9.54".

Here's a link to the discussion if anybody is interested. I may try to flesh out the viability of this a bit.

The thread started out to be a thought experiment that is similar to the "MonsterMotor" article then we start thinking about the possibility of the late rover block as a potential option. It can't be stable and the cylinder shear might be too great but it's fun to research.

Wildcat engineering makes a modified Rover casting that can be made up to a 6.0 litre.. I guess that would be around 375 CI.
