You wouldn't need to reverse it - Given that it is sharp corner-to-corner on 11x14 film, I would think it would work well making substantial enlargements from 8x10 negatives. How big, I can't say, as I've never enlarged anything as big as you're looking to enlarge. But the quality of the lens is legendary - I know of people who have bought the lens and then sunk another $800 or so into having it custom fit into a Copal #3 shutter to use it. These came off of very high-end repro cameras used in professional shops.
