Can or should I upgrade the 1988's 9mm con-rods to 13mm con-rods? If so, do I need to do any modifications?

The crankshaft main journal diameters are 55mm in the 1988 vs. 63mm in the later models. Is that an issue?

Thanks!
You got 300k outta your engine, how much you think you're gonna get if you get bigger rods or bearings?

And get your SO a better car than an 88 240, geeesh
