    SLT 780 piston tolerances?

    Long story short I'm finishing up a limited motor build for a 96 SLT 780. There should be a thread on it from about a year ago somewhere...

    I'm putting in 1mm over SBT pistons.

    What piston clearance tolerances should I hone the bores too? I'm new to building motors without Nikasil plating.
