The thinner the cylinder walls are will make a engine actually lose power due to the cylinder walls flexing. When the flex your rings dont seal as good. Then when you make more power its going to flex more yet. Cylinder walls will only flex so many times so much, then then blow out. All depends on what your doing with it, how much you have into the bottom end, and if you really need the extra bore size. Is not worrying about your bottom end worth the price of just changing the block? I love motors, can ya tell? haha
