Mind you I'm still learning how to rebuild so if my questions sound like something that should be common sense, it's all new to me
I will take a shot at this, I am sure there are others that know more
Boring and honing are basically the same thing
Boring just takes out more material at a time.
So You have to answer some questions first
Do you already have over sized pistons or you did not pick out them out yet?
Do you already have a reground crank?
What Cam and grind do you have?
If yes to either of these then you will need to let them know.
Have it hot dipped and magna fluxed to see if there are any cracks.
Are you also doing the heads?
With some patients, time an air grinder and some machine blue you can do a pretty good porting and polishing yourself to the heads and block.
Let us know so we can help ya some more.
