Decision made.  Sonic check and bore to 60 over.  It's the most economical solution and I figure if something goes wrong down the road, I'll deal with it then.  I'll start posting pics soon.
 
Related topic.  I want to pull the C6 out and rebuild it.  I know I have some valve seals that are leaking by.  If I jack the car up high enough, can I drop the crossmember support with the C6 still attached and slide it from underneath (using a trans jack of course)?  Is there enough room?  Or is it easier to use a picker and pull it up through the bay?  In this scenario I would unbolt rear support from cross, drop the cross from frame.  Will trans be able to clear the steering linkage on it's way up and out?

Don't need to jack the car up that high.....can drop it onto the floor and slide it out tail first, jack car about 5" and tip it forward. Will slide right out then, thats how I got mine in and out the last few times

I was hoping to hear that.  Super, makes sense and will be easier than hoisting it out.  When I put the engine back in I am going to first attach the transmission and then lower and angle the whole thing back in.  That seems like the best route vice sliding the tranny back under and then mating the two, right?

Ordered the FPA headers today, with the ceramic coating. Still need to find an intake that will match up to the 2.5x1.75 intake ports on the heads. Seems like it will be the Blue Thunder. Any reliable sources for them?

they're produced in batches as enough pre-orders dictate usually once a year, not a readily available One Click Gets It Quick kind of thing
 
here's a current thread or 2, Clevelanized has spattered the web in a quest to accelerate the production run

Can't wait that long.  Went with the Edel RPM Air Gap.  Advice I got from some pros is that it is not necessary to port match them to the large 4V heads, although I was told that it is easy to do.

Front windshield and rear glass are out. They both leaked so I am replacing rear weatherstrip and going with polyurethane install upfront. Trying to figure out best way to install. So much info out there, to use sealant or not under the weatherstrip to glass side, etc.

Both really. For the rear, first the glass to weatherstrip. After you put glass into weatherstrip, some say you then paste a small amount under the flap between the rubber and glass. Then after you put the assembly in place and do the rope trick to get the weatherstrip around the pinch weld edge some instructions indicate you are supposed to use a sealant in that area as well.

New FPA headers from Stan showed up today. They look really well made. I got the thermal coating with the grey finish.
