bore

  1. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Since I bought my v6 I've wanted to bore and stroke my engine so I can run with the big boys and not race little ricers I know I'm going to beat. Please, any advice you can give is helpful, I have no idea where to start. I need to know what is an acceptable bore size to gain power but not...

    Hey guys, I have a 5.0 cast iron short block on the engine stand with plans to build it up which are at a standstill because I don't know the actual displacement of the engine (which I thought was completely stock).

    I really messed up. I've got a 72' coupe with a built 460 in it. The top bolt for mounting my alternator striped out inside. I was told my two options were to either bore out and go from 3/8 to 7/16 or to drill 1/4 to 1.2 inch deeper and rethread. This older guy told me my best option was to...

    Ok, so I think I've got a little piston slap going on in the passenger side of the engine.

I will be stripping the motor...

When I do this I want to swap for the full metal Intake manifold, better pistons, possibly stroke, and bore over the cylinders. I am not...

    What is the maximum size I can bore this engine out to? Is it possible to bore it to a 302? and If so how much would it cost? I would assume If I wanted to do that going on craigslist and buying a 302 with a T-5, or C-4 Transmission would be cheaper?

    i took my block to the machine shop and they said after honing the block it would be .005 over! My question is could i go back stock and what would happen if i did?
