it seems either way you will be needing some bore work, but need to find out the problem causing the gash first....how do pistons and rings look?

I'd bore and hone the block, new hyperutectic pistons and rings and a good set of heads. That should fix your problem. I doubt its within your budget though...

Its really bad to run a motor with a score like that in one of the cylinders. Just asking for trouble.
