    I've heard that from people who have used B20 blocks. They really weren't produced to handle 12.5 psi. Most guys I know just throw block savers in.

    My sleeves were fine with 12.6:1 compression.

    TRuggiero- compression, not boost. :)

    I'd run those sleeves to 12.5:1 compression. :p
    12.5 psi, probably not...
