    well i had my rods and pistons installed about 2 months ago, So Me and a buddy at a local shop decided to check and see how everything was doing. so we pulled the head off dropped the oil pan and checked the oil filter for metal shavings. Well we saw way to many damn metal shavings. Plus way to much rod bearing wear for only having 1000 miles on the motor.And to top that all off the idiot over bored my damn cylinders so now i gotta fork out the extra cash to take it to another machine shop get it resleeved, or get a bigger bore piston. Man this sucks ass. Well my question to you guys is what would you do, sleeve it, or bore it and put a bigger piston in? Its a b16 and i plan on running about 10 to 15 psi?

    I just have a question about the situation for you guys...

    you all said to resleeve it. had he been n/a would you have said to put bigger pistons in because it would have displaced more and wouldn't have the added stress that 10-15psi of turbo would put on the motor?

    basically did you tell him to resleeve it because he's running f/i and not n/a or would you have said to resleeve it even if he was n/a.

    Usually if you are going with some form of forced induction sleeving is the best way to go. It adds some strength to your block to deal with the added pressure on the block. Usually when choosing to go N/A you could go either seelved or with bigger pistons. Bigger pistons are preffered when going N/A because of the higher displacement.

    have vinyl graphics made for all your family and freinds cars and let everyone know they suck,non-fancy vinyl is cheap.a freind of mine did this to Quality Autosound in Denver for a crappy custom install and not 3 days later they were calling him telling him they would do whatever to make it right.

    make sure you drive by the shop a few times at 10mph with your horn on.

    I was reading karnash's hustler post and noticed a sign maker on the board,maybe he could help you.
