Does your machine shop use a torque plate for cylinder honing? If not, find another machine shop. Torque plates are bolted on top of the block to simulate cylinder-head installation to get cylinder bores true to what they'll be with the heads installed. Honing the bores without a torque plate is trouble because when you install the heads, cylinder bores will distort, creating ring-seating issues and abnormal wear.
