Bad Penny

I have questions about Bad Penny from Knitty.

How much ease would you say it has? I am rather large on top and i want to make sure that the largest size (46" chest) will fit me.
The pattern calls for 16" size 8 and size 4 needles. 16"? I can CO 152 sts on 16" needles and work 400 by the time i get down to the body? Perhaps i'm mistaken but that seems pretty cramped, even for a small gauge.
And i was considering making it a little longer in the body as well as longer sleeves. Has anyone modified this pattern successfully?

I know i've been posting a lot lately, i just got back into lj after a hiatus and i enjoy this community.
