    if you don't feel like rebuilding it, just run it stock until it blows up

    short of a rebuild, or at least tearing the motor apart to have it sleeved, etc

    there isn't a ton of things you can do, if you want to go nuts you could replace every gasket, seal and o ring on the motor- but that isn't going to stop a sleeve from cracking

    I'm assuming this is on an EF rwith a B18a swap?

    Here are some things you might have to do or you may want to think about doing:

    -relocate battery to trunk

    -get a traction bar for downpipe clearance (ie. Full Race, Lcon, etc)

    -get an EG halfsize radiator (depending on your manifold setup)

    -you can upgrade the fuel pump now while you are still NA

    -install a clutch that can handle the extra HP/TQ you'll be making
