    FS/FT: B16A DARTON 83MM PRO SLEEVES. These are similar to AEBS sleeves. I bought them w/ the intention of building a b16 block, but I ran into a B18 for a great deal. I would like to sell these or trade for some 81mm B18 Flanged Darton Sleeves (MID). Hopefully someone bought the wrong MID kit (b18) for their B16 and would like to trade :D. I bought these NEW (and they are still new) for $550+ship. They have not been placed on the side (causes sleeves to become extremely slightly oval if left on it's side for an extended period of time) and has been kept in a temp controlled area at all times. All accessories and machine shop manual are included and are still new since I haven't really used it except to see the measurements that are req'd. SRP makes 83mm pistons for these sleeves.

    OH YEA, These sleeves DO NOT require the ENTIRE casting to be removed so you should be able to save some $$ on machine shop installation since less material has to be removed.

    FROM DARTON

    What is the max bore size on the sleeve? I'm guessing at least 85?

    When I talked to a guy at Darton, he told me that it's not recommended to go past 84.5mm with these sleeves. But I've heard of people taking it to 85mm w/ no problem, but they aren't high boost/high nitrous applications. If you are going turbo, you can just up the boost instead of increasing the bore size that much. Or if you are doing a nitrous application, add more nitrous w/ more retard in your ignition timing.
