    Hey guys! I'm building a b16 motor for boost.. and planing on to put a block guard/saver. I was wondering how do these block guard stay in place. After pressed/tapped in, Does It need to be weld it in place or does it stay in place with out weldin it? I'm planing to get a nuformz or eagle one, or any suggestions?
    It's a B16 with stock bore, crank , 9.1 je pistons, and eagle rods. hoping to put out at least 350+whp :mrgreen:

    dont use a blockguard. stock honda sleeves are good to around 500 whp. blockguards cause a lot more problems than they solve. if you want more than 500 whp, get real iron sleeves.
