BUILDING A CLOSE TO STOCK 7.3 ENGINE

Looking for honest opinions, not looking to get flamed. Close to 10 years ago I had a injector tip that broke from being EDM'd on a used nozzle. Long story short I built a new short block and built it up nice with good rods and really have a nice engine in my truck. The old short block only had 70,000 miles on it and I had never took it apart until last weekend. Crank and rod bearings are perfect and no issues or needs at all. I figured I had damage to the one cylinder wall from the nozzle and as I took it apart at first I thought it needed nothing. but looking at it after running a Flex hone through it and the cylinder next to it, I see that to be really nice it is going to need to be bored or a sleeve put it. I was going to build this really nice to sell, so my question is would you bore it 10 or 20 over and bore all the holes or just sleeve the one hole and build it standard bore. What would everyone else do it this situation and if you were selling it what would you do. Thanks for any and all input I also looked at getting just a 3 over piston and would weight match it to the others and balance but the smallest overbore I see anywhere is 10 over

if you can get away with a 10 over bore then i would absolutely do that, but i would do it to all of them imo, since your already doing just one.

I suspect you will get %50 or maybe %75 of the machine work's cost back into your pocket if you sell it.

Just sell it. Be honest, and just sell. Just my two cents worth of advice....

Well I hope to get a lot more then that. New rod bolts and nuts new lifters new rebuild kit with pistons and oil cooler. New Ford reman heads forced rods. Machine work and balance new piston oilers. That is quite a lot of money.

There's no way you're going to get all of that money back out of it. Re bore replace one piston, then yeah, but ten over everything and all aftermarket stuff? No way dude.

Actual performance shops have trouble selling pre-built engines.
Let alone Joe Blow from some facebook/Craigslist ad.
Bad idea all around.
