I do have one more question, I looked the GM head gasket P/N 10105117. It said it has a 4.000 Bore size. Isn't this going to cause Preignition being that my bore is 4.030? Or am i still in the clear?
I'm aware of the 4.000" bore size and the question of whether or not the gasket could possibly cause pre-ignition has never been fully answered or explained to me. If it bothers you, use the GM 14096405 with a 4.100" bore, same thickness. It's the gasket that GM used on the ZZ motors with aluminum heads.

Hey thanks for the part number. I have herd conflicting stories about the gasket causing it. I would just rather avoid it all together just to be safe.
