different(?) late night motor idea....

I was just reading over some of the 3.0/3.2/3.4 engine rebuild ideas. So I came up with a few ideas and some questions along the way.

If I take a 3.0sc engine, put 98mm RSR high comp style pistons and cylinders can I put in a different crank to bring the displacement back down to 3.0 litres?

So go up in one way but bring it back down in another, I wonder though if the piston moves too far away from the head will the CR drop dramatically and if so is there way to bring the cylinder and head closer to the crank to raise the CR back up to around 12:1?

I have always liked the idea of a 3.0 RSR engine but thought by boring and destroking a 3.0 would give a very rev happy engine. Then throw MFI on top with twin plugs and have fun.

Has anyone done something like this or am I just flailing in the dark?
