only way that could happen is if the block is warped. and that Is very hard to do. After he had it bored over did he manually check himself to see if it was done properly?? Becasue on 302's the back 2 cylinders closest to the winshield for some reason always have more wear on them, then the other 6. I had a similar problem like this in one of my 5.0L mustangs and it was due to poor and shotty machine shop work on my block. I had to bore it over a bit more to straghten it out. then it worked like a hot dam.
