Question

is it possible to get.010 over pistons that are correct for a dz 302 without being specially made/ordered?my biggest bore reads out at 4.005.
i would like to clean my block up by boring it out the least amount possible.
thanks billy

Sure, but I expect that they will cost more b/c they probably will need to be made one-off. Not like cheaper, higher production volume, off the self ones.

Give any of the piston makers of your choice a call and ask what they will cost.

I don't think it would be possible. The only option would be customer pistons ($$$). Also, a .010 overbore isn't going to clean much up...thats only .005 per side. If the cylinders are in that good of shape a good hone job would probably suffice.

Billy- I noticed your sig is 69Z28RS, and from DFW. I have a similar( I think) car that I am restoring, and could use some "collaboration". Are you a North Texas Camaro Club Member?
