No. You don't want to "bore out" Nicasil cylinders. They are thin and might warp. Also, replating the Nicasil will cost a dime + some and leave you with even less sturdy cylinders.

0.1L extra can be offset with slightly more boost. Otherwise, buy piston & cylinder set which fits your needs.

If you want more than 450HP, I advise using N/A 3.6 engine.
Thank you for your time,
