I think they CAN go .080 over but i personally wouldnt go over .040 as to it starts to run a little hotter the more and more you bore . I belive some sportsman blocks (cant remember which blocks they are) but they can be bored up to like .125 over.. If i remember correctly .

I wouldnt bore it anymore than it need to bore. If the motor only need to be bored over .020, then thats what id go with. You're not going to gain hardly any power by boring it out a little more.

Actually you can. Boring makes more Cubic Inches, Cubic Inches make more power.

If its already .030 over, that doesnt really say much. It might need to be turned only .010 or it could have to be bored to .060 if its Really Worn.

But id say .040, tops.
