    I have a b16 with 84mm Darton Sleves, I would like to be around 450 hp. Should I install a block guard while I have the motor apart or will I better off without it? Thanks

    Thank god you did it right the first time. Sleeving > Block Guard. The block guard is kind of the cheap man's solution to sleeving.
