    First of all, you need to get the pistons you're gonna use. Call mfr and ask how much clearance to run for your application, same with ring mfr, except you want to find out desired wall finish. (unless you're going to have the machine shop source the parts, they'll do it themselves)

    Find the highest end, high volume shop you can, most likely they will have updated, well maintained machines.

    As for what work to do, check the crankshaft line, and cylinder to crank for squareness (bore centered over crank throw). Give them the pistons, and they will hone each cylinder to FIT the pistons, which is always how it should be done. Pistons never all mic the same out of the box.

    If they provide the service, have them stress relief, shot-peen and resize your rods.

    A good shop will clean and chase all the holes in the block too.
    I really like the way aaawelder put it: "do not include yourself in this circuit"

    Luni: I lost oil

    MrWOT:
    Yeah the plan was to grab the pistons and have the shop go at it.
    I was eyeing on buying the "CP Pistons SC7450" but its 86.5mm and I'm still not sure if I want to bore it or not? I think this is the part Im stuck on thinking about for the longest time.

    I would get the 86.5mm pistons and have the machine shop measure the pistons and bore the block accordingly.

    Interesting-- didn't know about 4032.

    No racing more of a secondary daily driver once its back up.
    What are my options on the 4032 stuff? I was looking at maybe the Wossner pistons and Eagle rods to go with it which is about $799 plus whatever it is to ship it here unless I can find something else.
