Are these lines normal?

I’m putting an engine together and started noticing these lines in the cylinder walls as I was rotating the engine while degreeing the cam. Am I safe or do I need a new hone job?

Yes, that's ok. That's the high and low spots showing.

Really?? Cuz I have seen 100,000 mile motors with the cross hatch still clearly visible. If those lines are gone then you've severely overheated the cylinders and glazed the bores.

EDIT* Never mind. Need to open my eyes a bit more. I see the lines he was referring to now. Where's the facepalm emoji??????

It’s a 331, custom cam, 195 heads, 9.5-1 comp, systemax intake. Is there anything else I should do to get 350whp?

If that doesn't make 350 to the wheels, there is something wrong.

Easy. That's a damn good head and intake combo. I was making 1.4 HP per CI with a 347 with that setup and Eds cam. But he always tends to go big with me.

He just said 195 heads, you know itís afr though so should easily meet his goal.

Those Probe pistons should be good for that on their own.
