As in add material to the top of the engine to allow a longer stroke? I'm imagining an aluminum plate inserted between the head and the block with gaskets inbetween the three parts. Of course the extra plate would have to mate perfectly at the cylinder wall in order to allow the piston rings to travel without obstruction. Just a crazy thought! :D

I think it's a good idea in theory. However, I think there would be too many design issues to list.....if you want to increase the deck height, I think you'd be better off starting a 5.4L motor. That's the only thing different between the 4.6 and 5.4....you'd still have the same issues with the intake not fitting with a 5.4 that you'd have by even slightly increasing the deck height on a 4.6.............

Aluminum block vs. iron block.
