    My computer crashed this morning and I lost all of the web sites that carry sleeves, for the b18 and was wondering if you could post any up for me. And if you could also give me a recomendation on which company to go for?

    Benson's, Golden Eagle, Darton, and AEBS are the major guys out there right now.

    I have no experience with AEBS, but I've heard they are a great company to deal with, and the sleeves are super strong.

    Darton is bulletproof, but very expensive because the sleeves alone are $500, and then you have to locate the machinist willing to perform the $800+ in labor for the install.

    Benson's is a great choice. They're old school Honda guys, and have been around since the beginning. They're sleeve design is tried and true with updates along the way. They come highly recommended. Only slightly more expensive than Golden Eagle.

    Golden Eagle is the most well known engine sleeving company out there right now. Highly respected, but they have had some cases of sinking sleeves in the past. They say they have changed the design and processing of the sleeving to make them unsinkable. Haven't heard of any newly sleeved blocks with sinking issues. The least expensive just because of the quantity of sleeving jobs they do. They have standard and "Gozilla" sleeves which are said to be the strongest in the industry.

    I have heard of the Eagle sleeves sinking, but on there website it says that they offer a Year long warranty against sinking sleeves. and they have a Lifetime warranty against cracking!!! Is this a spoof or the real deal?

    What about GE HD sleeves, I know that they only came out on the 1st of Dec. But They seem a lot better that the GODZILLA sleeves...

    Local engine builder RLZ Engineering/Speed Concepts quoted a friend $750 for open deck sleeves and $850 for closed deck sleeves. RS Engineering units, installed.

    Here are the facts as I see them:

    - Open deck OE-sleeve replacements have held around 800 whp in the past, have superior cylinder cooling compared to closed deck sleeves.

    - Closed deck sleeves are able to withstand even more power.

    - You cannot bring more than 350 whp to bear in a Honda streetcar, unless you think streetracing from 100 mph rolls on public roads is fun. You simply have no traction, whatsoever.

    - Rods/pistons in stock sleeves can hold 300+ whp depending on engine, just drop some money on dyno time and tune conservatively - up the boost to increase the power as opposed to leaning things out.

    Unless you have a dragstrip/timeslip fetish, sleeves are pointless.
