To start with, cutting each dimension by half produces an engine one-eighth the size of the original not one half the size. Furthermore reductions are never to scale. certain dimensions have to remain near constant for the sake of strength. Cutting the small block in half to create a V-4 would not even reduce the size in half, due to the flywheel, water pump, bearings supports. Nor would it reduce weight by half, for the same reasons. So basically, the entire line of reasoning is hopelessly flawed from the outset. Lastly, the Boss Hoss, with the whole thing in there is a pussycat to handle and control, so what's the point?
