Physically? Probably. Will it work? No.

Sounds ambitious. What kind of power/torque are you expecting to make with that setup?

2.4 block is honed to 88mm instead of 86mm. The stroke on the le5 crank is less to accomodate higher compression I believe. Putting higher stroke crank, lower compression pistons along with the head, its basically putting an lnf bottom end into a slightly larger casing. Makes perfect sense
