Is it neccersary?? No. IMO tho if you got the motor apart and it will give you piece of mind go for it.
IMO you should have the bores checked after instalation to ensure they are still perfectyly round and in spec!!

If you're going 1 up on the pistons install the guard 1st then bore/hone the cyls. to ensure they are round.

have a shop clearance it and put it in. PERIOD. been there done this. They are not a perfect untouchable fit.
They will oblong your cylinder. Been there first hand with my machine shop and they laughed at it. Went ahead and just started letting them install them when work was needed or done. hey have drilled for cooling also.

i like block gaurds, however you must at least hone the block with a power hone (not a dingle berry hone at the end of a drill). I weld my block gaurds in too.
