    well my goals numbers wise isnt really there im just hoping to build a sick na engine but i do have hopes for a turbo later but i do plan out boring the engine either way. i was planning on doing .020 over but i was wondering if someone would say to go more cuz the last thing i wanna do is spend all that money on boring to only find out i could have gone more. yea ill do 20 over. what im hoping to do depending on the money is bore and sleeve the block. i have the engine totally dissassembled so i wanna build this thing to holy hell before i throw it in my del sol and get too lazy to take it back out lol.
