    you're joking right? 84mm is a very standard bore with aftermarket sleeves. its probably the most popular. you can go a lot bigger, im running 86mm, ive seen 87 on some n/a applications. displacment=good.

    86 is getting up there on some sleeves. i guess it realy just depends on the what kind of sleeves they are. maybe some race only engines are at 87 but i havent personally seen any, not on a B series anyway. at that point, the space between the cylinders get REAL thin and strength becoms and issue again.

    but yea 84 is a standard bore for a sleeved engine.

    If you have closed deck sleeves, 87mm is not an issue. 84 is standard, because you can get offshelf pistons. you'd have to special order 87s along with the proper hg, but that isn't a big deal. I'd worry more about having to deal with the bore of the combustion chamber - I'd probably bore the chambers to match the cylinder bore. Maybe it's less of a problem than I am thinking though.
