    Surface rust can range from no big deal to time for a rebore. Pull it apart to see.

    Yeah, either way I definitly don't think that it will cause you to need a different motor. Boring it out should do you right, or if it isn't bad at all, you could just hone it.

    Under $300 for cast, around $375 for KB hypers, and $550 or so and up for forged.

    Oh yeah, maddog finally has scat stock length forged rods for the 500 along with their ross pistons, so a forged pistons and rods combo will run about $1000.
