    I think I can answer that from a engine builder stand point.
    Irregardless of whether you use studs or not it likely needs this operation anyway.

    It's too your benefit. Old blocks move around and take a set, not always in the right place either. Now that it's stable doing the main bores will make it a better than new block and will stay that way.

    If its an ARP stud klit read the instructions as they do reccomend a line hone when adding their hardware, If its a peformance build it should be line honed any ways.

    Should one not reuse the studs or bolts that are torqued to specs during the align boring process ? They do stretch. Install NEW fasteners during actual final assembly ?
