its really a little bit anal to do that but i like to do it on some apps especially strokers like this and especially if i am using low expansion pistons and even more so if i am using higher torque on the head bolts than stock . . it only costs me around $45.00 more to get it done this why so its also pretty cheap . . i also run most of my engines at 180 or 185 as opposed to 192 for several reasons.

i don't know nowadays, perhaps psig would, but again, good rings will be a good defense against oil burning . . also having someone that knows what they are doing when boring and honing . . some shops accept a bore that might be tapered by .0005" or more when they are done . . others shops will fix this on a fancy power hone machine.
