Any time they talk bore it means overall diameter. But you are also correct in your way of thinking that .030 is .015 off of a side/wall. That opens up the total diameter by .030. Kevin 


4.060 divided by 2 = 2.030 2.030 squared (2.030 X 2.030) is 4.1209 4.1209 X pie is 12.946189 ( 3.1415 X 4.1209) The stroke of a 350 Chevrolet is 3.48 inches so 12.946189 X 3.48 is 45.052738 so that is how much 1 cylinder is. You have 8 cylinders so......... 45.052738 X 8 = 360.42191 Your engine size is 360 cubic inches A .030 over 350 is 355

Simple math. Take the bore and divide by 2 Square that Multiply by Pie.....3.1415 You have just found the area of a circle. Multiply by the stroke Multiply by the number of cylinders. EASY .
