Default Sleeving Q

Can I buy sleeves and then get them put in at a local place? Are there even local places that do that or do I have to send the whole block in to where I buy the sleeves and get it done. Is it better to send the whole thing in? (I know it depends on where I live)

usually a lot of machine shops will send a block out to be sleeved, especially a honda. erl performance is in the east, golden eagle is in the west, they do sleeves.

Ok thanks. Sleeves are the round cylinders, or "sleeves" that the pistons go up and down in.

Good question, anyone know. I am looking at benson right now for an h22 build. They want $3400 but they are sleeving, adding rods, piston and more. I dunno is that a good price?

I dont understand how you can sleeve your engine if it already has sleeves...

for most engines you dont need to, but 4 the old H22, if you wanna run boost safely you should sleeve her cause its sleeves suck for boost. yes they do, trust me. so you get new ones put in. simple. kinda.

machine shops put thicker sleeves in so the engine can handle more.

Not always thicker. Often times they're thinner to allow for larger pistons, thereby increasing displacement.

Here's one of my newbie threads that talks some about sleeving. https://www.hondacivicforum.com/m_185187/tm.htm
