..... in the past f1 cars this type of method (well not exactly) ....
the pistons would distort at high power due to asymmetry of temperature distribution and load distribution
this was compensated by making them more than usually out-of-round when cold
generating interference in a cold bore
re the actual question ...
a friend had persistent trouble with cylinder liner splitting in his Renault R8

the other liner was standard size and was (at first) replaced with an identical liner
