They have bigger but I would think one of those would be what I need.
120 is pretty ruff you may not need that much. Also use some motor oil on the cylinder walls while honing. Lots of oil and a few swipes per cylinder and your done. More is less. Literly!

240 320 you want small scratches not big ones.
