I just did not trust that old boring bar or me doing it, ha, ha. Looks quiet pricey the machining for your cylinders. Would love to see a dyno run after you get it all broke in and dialed in. Hope the engine work meets your expectations. Good luck. Send more pictures. Picture of the old pistons next to the new pistons would be cool.
I'll see what I can do, I plan on visiting the engineer shop at their lunchtime today, which is about an hour from now.
