hypo 550 build

Hi guys new here. currently building up a 550 v12. but i am interested in stock cylinder hear flow data if anyone has it and would share?
i also am looking few a few parts
* 1x nikasil aluminium cylinder liner
* 2x cylinder head oil drains
* 2x exhaust valves
* 2x valve spring retainers
* 1x rear main oil seal carrier
i will have parts a cant find cnc manufactured if need be.
here are some pics of what i have so far
i am using a motorcycle piston to reduce mass and significantly increase compression ratio (this will be a alcohol engine)
i also have had my own steel h beam conrods manufactured.
i have found a bearing shell from a 1.9l ford escort that the .25mm size fits the stock ferrari crank and have had my rods made to suit these. and these bearings are super cheap! it would also be possible to resize the stock rods to fit them.

What a cool project! Thanks for the pics.

Tell us more about the rods & pistons?

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
