I mean does this oversized pistons allow to widen the sleeves ? and thus to have a brand new upper engine ?
In a word yes,

As Phil has said a machine shop over bores the block so it’s bores are new, round and not scored. Then you fit a oversize piston to fit the oversize hole.

Best Box for SE5 competition car

If gearbox choice is free, then the T5 is probably the better choice - depending on budget, of course. Despite th...

ABS System for a 5A???
