I own a 1987 YJ 258 I6 with a 4.0L head swap. I'm sending the bare block down south next week to get cleaned and magnafluxed. Is it worth my while to overbore the cylinders to gain HP? If so, how much con I overbore the cylinders by and what size pistons will I need?
AMC 258, all mods

Your best bet is to check with the machine shop doing the work to see what they think they can bore it out to. You better off just cleaning the cilinder wall and going with a little higher compression pistons to make the horse power. A good 9.5:1 or even 10:1 is nice but you will have to use premiem fule. But than again the price you pay for power.
