snowman,

please believe me when I say to you that I do not mean any harm with these questions.

have you personally taken a flex hone to an alusil cylinder?

if so...

was it your own car or some one elses?

how many have you done?

how many miles have the engines you've done this to logged since you did this?

have you checked compression/leakdown after break in on these motors? what were the results?

do you work for motor meister? (ok... that was meant in jest)

the reason i ask these questions it that, once again you have given advice that flys in the face of convention. every authority including the manufacturer says not to re-use alusil cylinders let alone take a hone to them. so I just want to know your experience with the process you suggest. I would certainly hope you wouldn't give unconventional advice unless you had good results in practice of the advice you give.
