    do B16s and GSRs need to be sleeved for turbo. i cant really tell from what ive seen lately. I know the LS does, but the others got me stumped.

    Depends... but the LS doesn't need to sleeved in a situation where the GSR and B16 do not. If you're at a power level where you need to resleeve the LS block, you'll want to resleeve the VTEC blocks too.

    Tip #1- don't go to Jotech. Trust me. Go to Intercrew. Tell Phillip that Mike sent you.

    I made 325 at the wheels runing WAY leaner than I should have on stock overbored b16 sleeves.

    I ran a T3 on my stock LS and never had a problem. You dont have to resleve if your not looking for much power. 7 psi you could get away with stock sleves.

    you sure about that....


    I wouldn't push stock sleeves past 300 hp, the cost of sleeves isn't rediculously drastic and if you're trying to make more than 300hp, you should be looking into them.

    I guess I stand corrected.

    And yes 300 whp is plenty doable on an LS. I personally still wouldn't push the stock sleeves past 300 hp.

    He's in Garland right now... actually very close to Mesquite. Hit the web site and check out the new address.

    About the beginning of the year, actually... Phillip bought the new place quite a while ago, and had a pre-grand opening party a few months back.

    what are the best sleeves to buy for a B16a2 and where do you guys recomend i buy from??
    the last ones i looked at were AEBS T-sleeves but they were over a grand isn't that way too expensive??

    Don't bring back old threads, just start a new one to ask your question. Then we can all reply with "Do a search noob!" :D
