thanks for the info. for the pistons, i just got what D&D recommended, he said i would not have a problem with over heating if the fluid injection was working right. also, the compression will be a little less than original (not much) because the head gaskets are thicker.

i talked to several machine shops today on the phone and none of them want to line bore the cam bearing holes of the block. most of them told me they did not have the tooling to go that small other than with a hone. i think i am just going to mail the block to D&D and be done with it. looks like shipping will be $80 each way. i will end up having around $600 in a new cam and bearings being installed with shipping. that stinks! i should have sent it there to begin with.
