What are the options for pistons in the 1600? All I see commonly available is the standard 9.1 P&L sets (Centerline, etc).
An interesting modification. Increases the bore from the stock 1600's 78mm to 81mm. My calculator shows that this would push the displacement to 1690cc (note that the stock "1600" engine displaces 1567cc). I wonder how thin the liners become at their bases with 1.5mm taken off the walls?EDIT - I just found these at Spruell. Bored out liners, 1690cc, 10.5:1...

It appears, then, that I am way behind in my dues payments...There are plenty of us as members of TCAI. If you work on Italian cars, membership is assured.
There is two commonly used methods: Align (or line) Honing and line boring. I used to work in an engine shop and have line bored a few blocks. With both, the cap is closed down (machined).unnecessary align boring of blocks and how it moves the crank up
