Some blocks can go .060" over but, the cylinder walls need to be checked to make sure.

.030 easily, .060 sonic'd, .090 if you're REALLY brave, and there was a couple of guys on another board that have supposedly gone .125 (supposedly the walls on the early '99-'00 blocks are thick enough to do it) but it's awfully hard to believe because the walls would be paper thin between cylinders......but at .125 over with a 4.125" stroke crank you'd get 454cid !!!

Jeez, .125 is a whole lot for a 6.0L block. I've heard of .080" on a 6.0L but, never more than that. You're right those guys are brave.

.125" over with a 4.125" stroke is only a 441" though.

So, can the 5.3 be bored to the same displacement as the 6? The strokes are already the same, right? So just a big bore and some new pistons could make a 6L easy?

4.8/5.3L can go out to ~3.9".
