Ed,

I went with the 98mm P&C's. The Nickies is 98mm are slip fit, but the JB Racing cyl's are not in 98 mm. That is because the JB cyl's are a much thicker iron lined cyl than the Aluminum Nickies. I wish they were slip fit as well, but they are not. I didn't go with the 100mm as I felt that the 3.2/3.3L case did not have enough space to accomidate them. If I had started the project out with a 3.6L case... I would have went with 100 possibly 102mm... but thats another story. I had my crank offset ground and using the Pauter rods with 2" chevy journal. The increased stroke, along with the 98mm bore..got be just below a 3.6L ( somewhere in the neighborhood of 3584cc's).
I also felt that the thicker, iron lined cyl would stand up to boost better, and not have a tendancy to go egg shaped after time.. I also really loved the ring selection you can get with the iron cyl..... MUCH better options... Brad
