You may want to use a deck plate and bolt a transmission bellhousing to your block when boring. The deck plate simulates the distortion that tightening the cylinder head bolts cause to the bore. When the block is machined with the deck plate, the bore will return to round once the head is installed. Closed deck blocks like the SR20 and VG30 can benefit from this. Open deck blocks the QR25 and the VQ series probably won’t benefit from this.
