    I'm new to the forum & WOW so many great articles -- it'll take a while to lap them all up, but time well spent while waiting for my black beauty!

    With all the technology in this baby, I wouldn't be surprised with a variable displacement engine!

    But, alas, the 4.40 is the spacing between the bore centrelines which gives us 4.400 - 4.065 = 0.335" of meat between the cyls.
    Withing the next couple of years, I wonder who will get that dimension shaved down the most -- overbore'ing the cyls, racing, etc. -- fun, fun, fun!

    On the first page it describes the bore as both 4.40 inches and as 4.065. The miraculous variable displacement engine? Other than that, very interesting article.

    EDIT: I missed a word when I read the article. The first number refers to bore centers, not bore. My bad.
