    The problem with boring them is that the block is aluminum with an Iron sleeve adn the sleeve isn[t very thick at all. You can buy bare blocks pretty cheap anyways.

    There's a lot of machining that would have to be done and then the block would have to be re-sleeved. Most people go with an iron block and bigger cube build due to the price of having an aluminum block sleeved.

    You can go with a 3.905 bore, which is just a little oversize. The machine shop will hone fit the pistons. Just don't try to hand hone them. At the machine shop, it will true the bore. Here are some pistons...

    Thanks for the replies.
    Had the car since new in 08. It now has 167K miles on it.
    Just trying to figure if it's worth a restore.
