It will absolutly change the housing bore dimensions, the block should be machined with it installed....it will do more harm than good if it wasn't.

Wass the girdle sitting on the main caps? If so get some hardened washeres and space the girdle up so it is not touching.You could take and grind a little off the caps if you can not do it any other way.
