Ya i think you can boreing it out 4.000 would give you 362 cubic inc leaving you with a 6.0 the aluminum blocks have thinner cylinder walls i don't think they can be bored out like the iron block with out doin major mods to the cylinder walls like re sleeveing them but Im not hundred percent sure on that just what i assume

True, I found out after I bought mine that if you want cubes you need iron blocks. You are limited to a small bore amount without re-sleeving and stroking is the only other option.
