The offset builds use Mitsubishi 150mm rods, not the shortened Pauter 944-type.
The offset grind takes the stock crank down to a 45mm rod journal (Mitsu size).

I don't know if there is enough physical space in the block/girdle for a 52mm (944 size) journal and rods at 94mm stroke.

Some useful figures to consider in your calcs (all stock parts)
Head cc
8v ~56cc
16v ~42cc

HG thickness
1mm (0.039")
optional 1.4mm (0.055")

Deck height nominally ~230mm (sleeving requires the deck to be cut flat so your final deck height will be less)

So if you did use Mitsu parts...

230 deck height - 150 rod length - 47 (1/2 of 94 mm stroke) = 33mm piston pin (compression) height.

Tip: if you wanted to use shorter rods than Mitsu, and there was sufficient room in the block, you could save a lot of $$ by having the rod journals cut to 2.00" and using 5.7" Chevy inline 6 rods, about $75 each vs $230 each for the 944 stuff.
