The diameter (and hence the clearance) depends on the piston's alloy. Thus, a new piston usually comes with the bore diameter required.

Yes, you (or your machinist) needs the new piston in your hand BEFORE doing any reboring.

Clearance would typically be 4 or 5 thou, but the instructions for the new piston will say exactly how much.
Its a bad mistake to bore it with less than instructed, in the belief it will give it magic properties....
