A couple more from work to give you an idea. This piston and rod is off an 1163 (11.63L per cylinder) 16-20 Cylinders, used on navy frigates.

Stay tuned, both exa and bravo will be getting tuned this week, both have been massivly delayed, due to me being away for the last 3months overseas. Ive managed to get the japspec rocker cover and timing cover to fit the aus spec head, thanks to some ideas from tas! I did make an attempt to tune the bravo last week, but head bolts stretched and warped the head as soon as we ran some boost into it, so custom arp head studs are currently being fitted.
