Just as a rough calculation here, the bore is .030 over. So it stands to reason that you are taking each cylinder of a 351 cubic inch motor and expanding by .030. I just take the .030 and multiply by 351 and that is apx. 11 more cubes, so 362 cubic inches. The math might not be perfect since we are actually talking about expanding the circumference/volume of a tube basically...expanding the bore.
Well, now I got to go see if my shortcut math is correct, or if you really need to take the new bore measurement and apply it in the formula for calculating volume of a cylinder x 8. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
