Will I be able to replace 1 main cap or do I have to get a complete set. The block is a standard bore at this time . Will need a line bore .

As you stated, line boring is a must. If needing to replace one then a set of aftermarket rods might be a better choice and give you some piece of mind as well.

Main cap replacement is fine since you are align boring. If you weren't align boring you'd be rolling the dice.

Bowties are for Pee-wee Herman. "Chevy": even the name sounds cheap, but not as cheap as your Pontiac will be with an LS transplant.
