i dont know the

answer to your question, but i believe that if that is not possible you should be able to get sleeves to bore, sleeve and go back with stock pistons.

i would nt be surprised if you can bore and use the 240 pistons. according to my mb buyers guide, the stroke is the same and only the bore differs. i think most other parts are the same as well when comparing the early 240s. later after 80 or so there is a different setup on the ac mounting. that may affect the block casting i am not sure. the cranks and such are the same for all 240s i believe. and the 300 non turbos use all the same parts except block crank cam and oil pump... there are prob others but these are the major.
