Major cam shaft modification would be required. No changes made to crankshaft.

Ignition firing, firing order would be: Fire the two cylinders at TDC compression stroke. Fire other two cylinders at 180 degree crankshaft rotation. 540 degree crankshaft rotation without firing cylinders or firing the cylinders on the exhaust stroke. Bringing us back to fire two cylinders at TDC.
I have an excuse. CRS.

So the version with modified crankshaft would fire evenly, like a Deere, while the modified camshaft would "lope", like a Harley. Two different characteristics and sounds, but two different ways to make it a twin cylinder.....
