Piston to Wall Clearance
I am in the process of rebuilding my 12v and was wondering if it would be alright to run extra piston to wall clearance if i am only planing on 400-450hp. I know that this is a common thing to do to high horse engines but am unsure if it is a good idea with only moderate hp increase. As I understand it, the amount of boost you are pushing plays a big role in how much extra clearance to bore for. How much boost would I need to make to still get the proper ring pressure? Currently my bores are sitting towards the high end of spec and I was planing on using standard sized pistons. I guess the biggest thing that I am concerned about is having too much clearance and then having a ton of blow by.
Any advise is appreciated
