Bored .020 over means that the cylinders have been bored 20,000's of a inch bigger, which will give you a little more power out of the motor. Also, don't bore a motor more than .040 over or you'll start having problems with the motor, and most likely ruin the block, because the cooling passages going through the block have a risk of cracking, because the space between the cylinder and the water passages get smaller when bored. Basically .020 is OK, just don't go over .040.

you should be careful... make sure they had it done by a professional... i would usually stay away from highly modded cars because people drive them hard... this could pose problems in the future...
