    Judging by the looks of the sleeves... no closed deck... They look like oem sleeves, but the short block was used, so I would measure the sleeve thickness and compare it to the stock measurement and see what you get. If its thicker, than its sleeved with an open deck and just simply looks like shit. :thumbsup:

    There is no way that block is sleeved. You can see the two different materials the aluminum alloy and the steel liner

    Then why did you buy it? I hope you didn't pay any more than what the car would have been worth stock...

    If I thought someone was bullshitting me I probably wouldn't buy anything from them...

    The fact that they're not telling you the truth about the vehicle they're selling proves one of two things: 1.) they're stupid, and they probably didn't take care of the car, or 2.) they don't have a problem with lying, which means they might be lying about other things (maintenance, condition of the vehicle, accidents, etc.).

    Oh well though, seems like you're happy with it, so I guess that's all that matters, right?
