Here's my thinking...
If I could start over on this rebuild. I would consider going .060" over on the bore and raising the compression to 9.7 by milling the head + the block deck clean.  Even if I had to burn 89 octane or higher, it's only about $14.00 more a month on my averge fuel cost.

To get that extra torque, I think it would be worth it.  But... I've gotten different opinions on if its worth it or would make that much difference in power gain.

Any other thoughts...?

Gnarls.

nah, wait ten years or 200,000 miles and then bore it to .060 :thumbs:
