To Bore or not to Bore?
My 327 is at the machine shop being degreased and magged. I got a call from them today indicating that everything was good except the cylinders. When I was disassembling it I noticed the typical ridge at the top of the cylinders. The pistons came out very easy. The shop tells me there is a 0.007" ridge. They also tell me that that is on the borderline.
Should I have the cylinders bored 30 over? It will cost me about $350 (including new pistons). I know its cleaner, but at what point should it be done, versus leaving the ridge? I appreciate any input, especially if you have numbers.
