One of my recent customers had a sleeved 86.5 motor
and did the same thing. He just bored up to the 87mm
Group K piston. I did a little fine tunning and with my
handling package it was hitting right at 81 mph through
some mild wind chop.

No the Miller sleeves are not as big in diameter as some of the sleeeves used by Chapin and Judge. I have cylinders that were Chapin/Judge which probably are Lamey derived that had 90mm sleeves, they are out and the hole is 90mm. The Mel Miller and Speedwerx/Hedlund engines have sleeves around 87-88mm measuring thickness at the transfer roofs where the cast iron meets the aluminum.
I've also seen one sleeve at 94mm's in a GPR - they used CR500 pistons long before the rage on this forum of big bores.
