Tor,

I had the same problem a few years ago on my 3.2. I decided to have a groove cut into the tops of the cylinders like on the 3.0 engines and use a CE ring. It worked like a champ. Ted Robinson did this for me at German Precision. I suspect you could have it done at a machine shop if you can get the dimensions of the groove from an SC cylinder. The other thing you really should do is replace the lower studs with steel studs. This will help the clamping force and eliminate the chance of a broken head stud.
