When I install my stroker kit I will be using my stock block. Will there be any issues when the block gets cleaned up and all. Meaning as the bores will be to big to use my stock bore pistons.

Some people say that I should just use a new block. That the block bores may not work after its honed

Your machine shop should be have a guess as to whether it will work or not. I doubt that you would have so much wear that it couldn't just be honed. How many miles do you have? The only way to know for sure is to mic the cylinders and check for wear, or run your fingernail up the bore to check for a lip once the heads are off. If you have less than 40,000 on it I'd think it would be alright.

Once the shortblock is torn down and all the clearances are checked a good machine shop will be able to tell you if you need a new block or not. Don't buy a new block yet !
