GOOD CALL. Was so worried about all the other aspects, completely forgot about that option! good call! I've install Hardblok brand into multiple BBCs, and SBCs. effective.You can also do some block filling to support thin cylinder walls. I did this to great effect on an overbored 1.8.
please see the following two quotes:

and get out of my thread. please and thank you.Read the thread.
Are you at least a hairdresser? Then it would be fine.hahaha.

i mean, me and spitefulcheerio had that one time together....but it was just one time i swear!
thinnertenor, So sorry for not seeing this, been very busy lately. Unfortunately I wasnt able to see what the casting numbers were on the pistons. The engine was already built that way when I bought it and I didn't bother to make any notes when we rebuilt it. I used a stock head gasket hence the need to machine about 1mm off of the piston crown circumference since the piston does rise above the deck at TDC. I rebuilt it again recently and now use an 80mm .040" cometic head gasket. The car has been in and out of the shop for various reasons. Now its being painted again.Sorry for the lack of updates onthis, but my work has kept me excessively busy overthe last year. But there is good news...there is a 91 model miata on its way to me for payment on another miata engine swap job. as soon as that one is torn down, I'll post updates on reassembly and head flow data after the head has been deshrouded for the 81mm bore.
Boosted34: which pistons were in yours? Was there a casting number on them?
and which HG did you use?
