    • If you plan on keeping it a long time, I'd shoot for a .030 bore and new pistons.

      • I made the decision to bore and try out some Keith Black hypereutectic pistons. I just made the phone call and set it all in motion. I’ll save money with the cam and use a hydraulic flat tappet instead of going to roller cam, like I was considering.

          • I’m getting hit by the ‘might as well’ bug, I just told them I want to have the reciprocating system balanced as well.

                I understand how that goes.

                I was hoping that I could just have my bores opened .020” but the pitting was bad on one cylinder so he had to cut it to .030”. I was hoping to save some cylinder wall but the luck wasn’t on my side.

                But I did just order my pistons, Keith Black hypereutectic KB148-030, which should give me 9.8:1 by my math.

                • No more than you'll drive it Steve, even at .030 over it should out last you. What do you put on your Mach, 1000, maybe 1500 miles a year?

                  • Yeah, they sure don’t get the exercise they need, that’s for sure.

                    • Mine sure don't. The Firebird I doubt we've put 3000 miles on it in the three years we've owned it. It sits so long the battery goes dead between driving. Even my pickup is that way. Only the wife's Expy gets regular use, 98% by her to the tune of 20,000 a year, and she doesn't even work!

                      • At least I have some new pistons to look at.
