where should i get my block sleeved?
check out the overboost.com article if you haven't already... Golden Eagle Article on Overboost.com
lookin through a few magazines and most cars are running Darton sleeves (a 242whp NA ITR, a 949whp 9 sec TT supra, a 8.90 sec civic.....) pretty impressive
Thats where I plan on getting mine sleeved!
i put this in another thread for you but just incase you don't get to read it here is what i got from golden eagle when i inquired to sleeve a ls to 84mm.
To get your block sleeved will run you $750.00 + shipping and handling .
This includes putting our "Godzilla" sleeves into your block, cleaning and
decking - Two Options:
1. step deck which is usually for block that do not have enough room for
an o-ring due to large bores
2. O-ring - which we like to put on all motors if possible. Works great
on turbo or NOS cars.
Remember, we use all CNC equipment to do the sleeving portion
of the operation so no one can touch us when it comes to quality,
craftsmanship, tolerances and turn-around. NO ONE!! Plus, our blocks
get pressure tested before they leave to ensure a perfect block every time!
Quality and reliability are always our top concerns. Turn around time is
approx. 10 - 15 working days.
We can bore and hone your block but this process is an additional
$125.00, adds 3 - 5 days to the turn around time and we need the pistons
in order to get the process done. I can get you ARIAS pistons for $515.00 .
Just tell me what your compression preferences are? If you buy the combo
block sleeve, pistons and bore & hone then I can knock your total for the
job to $1316.00.( a savings of $109 ) Then all you need is someone to
assemble your motor and your off with a lot more reliable power than you
had!!! ( price based on shelf stock pistons. Custom pistons slightly higher! )
Just to let you know, if you decide to ship your block to us without
contacting us first, please follow the next steps to ensure the job gets
done fast and correct.
1. Strip the block of everything, even the mains and oil squirters!
This will help you save on shipping!
2. Include a note with your block that has your full name, address,
contact number and instructions on what your will be using the block
for and any preferences you may have like o-ring or bore & hone, etc.
3. Unless you have spoken with Golden Eagle rep., all payment is up front.
We will not start work on a block until the money has cleared our bank. We
will contact you upon completion of your block and let you know what the
return shipping costs will be. Return will be freight collect so you must have
a check ready for the amount we inform you about.
If you are local, please stop by our place. We would love to give you
a look around the place and show you some of what we do here at
Golden Eagle Mfg.
We can also build the motor at our state of the art facility. If
this sounds like something you would like to do, please e-mail me so I can
get into detail about it with you.
I hope this has answered some of the questions you may have had and
I look forward to doing business with you soon.
