Is it worth the trouble to bore it or should i just skip that and use that $ to go towards the rods? I will probably be using a block that has under 35k miles on it. If the cams are not ideal do you think i should sell them and put that towards new ones or will they make a noticeable difference? Also do I need to take the crank out to swap the rods and pistons?
i would say stay the same bore since the block is good, not alot of power in in overbore for the cost.. but no you dont have to pull the crank to do the pistons and rods...just undo the rod caps and pus out the top (if heads are removed) opposite when installing just get one of those piston ring compressor tools. it compresses the rings down so you can lightly tap the piston back in.

Are you using the stock cast crank or do you have a forged ho crank? Is the cast crank strong enough to handle boost?
the cast crank can handle the boost, its just the stock pistons and rods that will give issues. duner found out just how much the rods couldn't handle....but he put alot more thru it than what dj wolf is gonna put thru his

Any guesstimate on how much boost the cast crank can handle?
duner had put a couple trips down the track with a faulty wastegate and and IIRC he said it was about 30lbs or so of boost. bent all the rods into "s" shape and took 2 weeks before the first one broke
