No, everything was done the same on both sides. Same size rings and pistons on all 8. Same size crank and rod bearings.

I'm not sure what you are asking. If you are asking if the low bank timing is off, as far as I know, which isn't a whole lot, the timing should be spot on. Maybe cam sprocket was set wrong or has...
