Those are M&W pistons. More than likely it has had one rebuild so far.

I don't think you can push the bore that far out. Those cylinder walls are not all that thick before you cut into the water jackets.

You might want to give Ken Updike a call. I don't know if he has any souped up kits, but I bet he can refer you to the right person. 608-455-2411.
