    I want to do a B20/VTEC swap but I have herd the one-piece sleeves are very weak. Is there a way to enforce it or fix this problem? I plan on running turbo. Would it be better to just get a b18 and bore it to 84mm? Any help appreciated.

    i've posted this in a few other forums.... and honestly it isn't a bad deal at all... this is for Golden Eagle 84mm Godzilla Sleeves.

    ------------------------------------------
    To get your block sleeved will run you $750.00 + shipping and handling .
    This includes putting our "Godzilla" sleeves into your block, cleaning and
    decking - Two Options:
    1. step deck which is usually for block that do not have enough room for
    an o-ring due to large bores
    2. O-ring - which we like to put on all motors if possible. Works great
    on turbo or NOS cars.
    Remember, we use all CNC equipment to do the sleeving portion
    of the operation so no one can touch us when it comes to quality,
    craftsmanship, tolerances and turn-around. NO ONE!! Plus, our blocks
    get pressure tested before they leave to ensure a perfect block every time!
    Quality and reliability are always our top concerns. Turn around time is
    approx. 10 - 15 working days.

    We can bore and hone your block but this process is an additional
    $125.00, adds 3 - 5 days to the turn around time and we need the pistons
    in order to get the process done. I can get you ARIAS pistons for $515.00 .
    Just tell me what your compression preferences are? If you buy the combo
    block sleeve, pistons and bore & hone then I can knock your total for the
    job to $1316.00.( a savings of $109 ) Then all you need is someone to
    assemble your motor and your off with a lot more reliable power than you
    had!!! ( price based on shelf stock pistons. Custom pistons slightly higher! )

    Just to let you know, if you decide to ship your block to us without
    contacting us first, please follow the next steps to ensure the job gets
    done fast and correct.
    1. Strip the block of everything, even the mains and oil squirters!
    This will help you save on shipping!
    2. Include a note with your block that has your full name, address,
    contact number and instructions on what your will be using the block
    for and any preferences you may have like o-ring or bore & hone, etc.
    3. Unless you have spoken with Golden Eagle rep., all payment is up front.
    We will not start work on a block until the money has cleared our bank. We
    will contact you upon completion of your block and let you know what the
    return shipping costs will be. Return will be freight collect so you must have
    a check ready for the amount we inform you about.

    If you are local, please stop by our place. We would love to give you
    a look around the place and show you some of what we do here at
    Golden Eagle Mfg.

    We can also build the motor at our state of the art facility. If
    this sounds like something you would like to do, please e-mail me so I can
    get into detail about it with you.

    I hope this has answered some of the questions you may have had and
    I look forward to doing business with you soon.

    If you want to boost it then you are better off sleeving a B18B to 84mm. THe B20b/z sleeves work fine for NA applications and could probably hold a little boost, but if I were you I would just sleeve the LS. Also, the VTEC head swap isn't necessary if you want boost. You can make just as much power with the LS head boosted as you can the VTEC head.

    watch what you say about making more power without vtec..... remember the last debate it broke out.... but yeah personally i'm more biased to turboing a b18b over a b18c

    Your right, I should qualify. You can make as much power for less money...
