ok so now i've seen 2 people claim to have bored there 4L out to 4.3.

and we all now that you can't stroke these engines.
now to get 4.3 from a rebore you need a 160thou over piston, or 4mm over.
but i have to say that it is just not posible to bore one of these engine that far.

then you run into head gasket problems as well. and then you would need custom pistons too.

so tell how do you guys do it?

borderline 4.3 .. just under ... whos the other person, im interested in who else did it :)

The motor's head is coming on within the next week, you I'll host up some pics then .
