 Here is a tech tip on engines. When you hone a engine out, put the head bolts in and let nit sit over night befor you hone it out. See, when you put in the head blots it distorts the wall and if you hone it without the bolts in it will be true untill you put in the head bolts. So if you hone it with the bolts the bore will be realy true.

So if you hone it with the bolts the bore will be realy true.

Assuming you are talking about having the bolts tight and assuming that you are talking about using stock head bolts I don't see how this would make much difference.  Because the head bolts will not have no real torque on the because they will bottom out or run out of treads before you get them tight like they would be with a head on it.  If you leave them lose/just hand tightened in there I don't see where that would distort the cylinder walls.

The real ticket is a torque plate.  Using a torque plate will allow you to install the bolts and torque them down just as if you had the head on.  The torque of the bolts is what distorts the cylinder walls.  With the torque plate in place and torqued down you can hone the cylinder and then when you assembley your engine you can feel sure that your cylinder wall is true.

I would have to agree with Jed on this one. A torque plate is the only way your going to get the cylinder to "distort" like it would if the head was bolted on.
