<font color='#FF0000'>They get a V-6gm block cut to where its a 4. From that they get bigger pistons, rods, valves, cam and other parts like that.. I read it in sports compact car, that some people are doing that to get more power.</font>

<font color='#000000'>I dunno.  That seems kind of odd.  They don't use V-4's in cars for a reason, most of it efficiency.  I suppose anything is possible, but highly unlikely and probably more cost than it's worth I would guess when you figure in rewiring, computer adjustments (can't just take a J-body PCM and plug it into the new 4 banger that was cut from, say, a 3800 engine, or 3400 engine).  How did it turn out in the article, btw?</font>
