    Even if you go to a custom piston/overbore solution, you have pushed that block further than it was ever intended to go. If the engine is original, sleeve it to keep it. If it's an after production...

    The only thing in those photos that would give away the fact that we are not looking at a real chassis is the jackstands. They need to be two or three colors, a bit rusty and scratched up.
