Hypothetically, if the heads did line up, etc., couldn't you solve the timing problem by going with a 180 degree crank for the V8?  They use them in racing, but not on the street because, as I understand, they create too much vibration.  But that wouldn't be a problem for a crazy hot rod engine, would it. 

With the 180 degree crank, you'd have the timing for each side the same as for a single 907, but you'd have to offset the banks for the engine's V-angle.

Just a thought...

Of course, it might be easier to just get a shop to CNC "Jensen Healey" on some aluminum Buick valve covers.
