Read the instructions. There is modifying with either size. Bore has no effect on any of the modifications.

Maybe on an fbody, or something, but on a vette I wouldn't touch it. I have a tick, and only reason it is still on there is because it was such a pain to install and the modifications to install it.

It hasn't given me any issues. If you have it, put it on, but I wouldn't buy one if I didn't have one. If you can sell it easy, do that.

Have you also read how _none_ of the aftermarket clutch manufacturers recommend them? All of the clutches are designed for stock hydraulics.
