The engine a buddy and I are building is already bored over .040" and the walls look a little thin. can we take off any more at all? we need to get the taper off at the very least.

you can go .060 over but dont go bigger than you actually need to - you may only need .040. the thinner the walls get the more heat and reliability become a factor. .060 will also not let you rebuild it agian in the future with out sleeving the block and that is very expensive.

I wouldn't touch a motor that is bored .060 over. Just hone the one you got and it should be good as is, unless it was run for a long time before but i doubt that. Will become a real hassle because it will run real hot easily.
