    this thread is OVER a year old.

    i suggest you call around and see if prices are the same... because they probably aren't, or some places might not even be doing sleeves any more.

    Where have you read that. I would like to read it. I looked at them but decided to use GE.

    The darton has a small groove around the top and a series of small holes. I believe that this design will hold more heat and could possibly cause turbulance with the coolant.

    The GE's on the other hand look to be more open at the top. I wish I could have got dimensional information on both of them. If so a calculation of surface area at the top of the sleeve could have been made and see if they are close or not. Picture wise I do not think so.
