Current theory says that bores that large are not required for anything short of... Well, bragging rights! There are also quite a few people who feel that going larger than 96es without spending $$$$$ for nikasil-plated aluminum cylinders is a waste of money.

96x78 or so is a very popular engine these days (look around for "2270"). With a good configuration, some of those engines are pushing 200 HP on pump gas. Evidently with a very nice torque curve and daily-driver type reliability.

It ain't cheap, though!

Spend a while reading up on places like the "Type 4um" over at . Look through as well, but hold onto your wallet!
