I am investigating basic specifications of Alfa Boxer engines. AFAIK , there is no dimensional differences between 8V and 16V connecting rods. But, what are dimensions of these connecting rods? Length between big end and small end centers, width of big end and small end, pin diameter, big end diameter.

Picture of boxer rods:

Why rod bolt holes are placed like this - in degree off center? Is it for easy installation or restrictions of the block?

Is it possible to install casual-type rods in these engines if any other dimensions are the same? Like this:

As I see, AH motorsports list such type of connecting rods for 33 engine.

Thank you!
Kind regards, Krists
