    piston question for nitro

    Ok so I have an 02 f12 na. Previous owner pickled the engine with salt water and left it for over a year. I stripped the engine down to rebuild and was going to go with the Honda .050 over piston and ring set. But when I went to have it bored I was told it could not be bored as it was plated aluminum and the plating was too thin for .050 bore. So I guess the real question is why does Honda sell an oversize set if it can't be bored.

    So can it or can it not be bored with out sleeving?

    Your dealer info is incorrect, It can be bored even to 1mm (stock bores are Not coated/plated).

    I can get you any piston size you want. PM me for prices.

    Shawn [Nitro] is right, it is a steel sleeved motor. If the rust is to deep, you can have it resleeved by someone like LA Sleeve or US Chrome.
