    you can't re-sleeve it yourself unless you have a bunch of top end machinery.

    I will answer your question with a question what are you planning on running for a turbo. If you are running a small turbo I would go higher. If you are running a mid level turbo what you were planning is great. If you wanna make crazy hp off a huge turbo you want really low CR.

    We sell AEBS sleeves, which are pretty much the standard by which all other sleeves are measured. Also, they do all the work, you just send in your block. I'm with Wired SpeedLab, and we're an HT sponsor, so you can visit our site, or I can help you out directly. The only thing you have to do is strip the block down completely, including crank and all, and then we arrange for you to send it in, and when you get it back, it has a killer set of sleeves that will take any abuse you can throw at it! Email me at josh@wiredspeed.com or hit me up on AIM: wiredspeedjosh if you're interested.

    oops, I just realized that I was a little confused about which forum I was on. I hope I didn't piss anybody off advertising like that on the wrong forum!

    If you plan on running 16lb of boost.. stock sleeves are not going to be your best bet or work very long. Your cylinder bores will begin to distort and you will loose your ring seal.

    Step up and build it once.. EAGLE.. I've pushed 15.3lb on my stock B18B.. and they will not last long if you do not have the car tuned correctly. If you go the route of a stock replacement liner.. make sure it is built out of quality materials and some one who is a player in this game. Just a word of advice.. and learning the hard way as I have.
