Default TEKSID rebuild

So I have my 94 teksid. I have been debating on whether to get a DSS rotating assembly or to make a frankenstein engine out of it.

I have been looking around, and I have noticed that these mod motor rods and pistons are way more expensive than a small block chevy.

So my question is, would it be possible to overbore the block so I could you a set of forged chevy pistons (have 2 sets in the garage) and use a 3.570 stroke rod with the 4.6 crank?

I havent been able to find specs on the dimensions of the 4.6 crank and the width of the 4.6 rods.
