well what are your plans? 500 whp turbo setup or a 200hp n/a setup?

theres a myriad of possibilities that could warrent the sleeving of the block.

i sleeved my d16 just to know i have the insurence of if i get some bad gas and detonate i wont crack a sleeve, but then again im gonna run 25+ psi of boost. if your shooting for under 325whp then i think you will be fine on stock sleeves
