    Engine Bore in PNW? Specifically ~Portland area.

    Engine Bore in PNW? Specifically ~Portland area.

    Hey I need to get a 787 bored, guessing 0.25mm over.

    Who do we go to and have a set of cylinders bored?


    I assume I have to do both cylinder equally? To keep them in balance for dynamic weight?


    Do the brand of pistons matter? Do I need a set of teflon skirts like stock, does that even help long term?

    Do I need to purchase pistons Before the bore? Or can they cut them and match them to a set of pistons?

    Type of gaskets matter significantly? OEM VS aftermarket kits like from ebay?Specifically for water jacketed surfaces.

    Thank you, PMed him he was quick to respond with follow up and shipping instructions.

    Can anyone comment from experience on the above details for accompanying parts?

    Last time I did this was on a 951, and used mostly/all OEM parts...but if I have some reassurances, wouldn't mind following what others do that is know to work well.
