You mean 2.7 eta, right?

Either way, it will work, but will not give you any gains. In fact, it may be worse. Lower compression ratio (7.9:1 IIRC). You basically need super-eta pistons (or bottom end) to get the right piston shape to take advantage of the I heads larger combustion port and it's shape.

eta's are 2.7l. NOT 2.8.

Yes its "bolt on" if you bolt on everything from a i on the top end, electronics included.

You will end up with a gutless low compression (~8.2:1) 2.7l NOT a stroker.
