They'll work but .040 over is way too much on a modular block.

Hey, off the top of your head, how far can a Teksid be bored before it needs sleeves. I think that .040 pistons are available...

Most common bored out pistons I've seen for a modular is .030 over.

Ok. 030 seems like the biggest "standard" oversize. Lol. I was supposed to figure this stuff out last weekend to let my machinist know what I wanted to do...

I would not go more than .020 personally. I know for a fact that if you have an aluminum block it gets dicey after that. My Teksid is stock bore and I'm going to try to get it to hone up true at the stock bore or just go .010 over if I can. That is if I decide to go ahead and build it vs selling my car.

Ok. Thanks. No way mine is going to clean-up with a hone. Hopefully it doesn't need any sleeves.
Machinists are so slow, hopefully I'll find out before the end of the month...
