Line bore the cylinders"? Usually you replace the cylinder liners not bore them. Now if they are line boring the block thats another story.

well mule, seems you dont know what they are doing to your engine, so what do you expect when you get it back? a step 3 out of frame rebuild is gonna be close to $22 grand. You could have bought a newer truck for that kind of money. what else are you having done while this step 3 is being done? radiator, clutch, hoses, belts, and a lot more that should be done. what year is the truck? Is the truck gonna be worth the money after the engine is done?

IT WENT BING BANG BOOM!
