I am ripping my L26 down to the bare components and building it up with high performance in mind. I was wondering what effect going up .020 in piston dia. would have on the overall torque and HP or my particular engine. I would go the full .040 but Motorsports Auto doesn't carry any aftermarket pistons anymore for the L24 or L26. Also, I would love any other suggestions on building my engine ( other than superchargers and the like).

i believe Vic. Brit. still carries the .040 pistions for the 240s and 260s as well as the .020.

I went .050 over on my 78 L28 and put in Flattops as well. MAN!!! What an AMAZING increase in performance! Just remember that if you do the max overbore, then next time you need to rebuild, you are looking for a new block.
