    Yo guys,

    quick question

    If you bought a dart b20 block thats filled, NOT THE EMPTY, the filled one with eagle parts, and a dart type gsx head, bored and honed the block to 2.2 and resleeve'd it... slapped a turbo on there .... how much HP do you think it could safeuly take?

    thats straight from dart.. block and head + turbo kit

    i just dont know what comes in the blocks and head if you order them from dart already built up..

    thanks guys

    nobody has any clue dude. You need to call DART on that one and see what it is rated for.

    2.1 is pretty much as big as you can go without going stupid.

    85mm bore, ls crank/rod length will get you there.

    tbone put about 240whp down with a dart 2.1 block, and a FULLY worked ITR head/ef-1 and skunk2 stage 3 cams

    and a SHIT load of other parts, hondata, smsp header, and all that

    just add juice. you'll be 11s, even if you have street tires. if you can drive.

    btw, i think it might be pointless to sleeve a DART block? but that may be me. isn't it the point of a dart block to have superior structure?

    i thought the DART block already comes with uprated sleeves. cant they handle like 55psi boost?
