They'll all h old up just fine for N/A purposes. I have a GE sleeve in my block at 85.5mm, and I love it.

this thread is OVER a year old.

i suggest you call around and see if prices are the same... because they probably aren't, or some places might not even be doing sleeves any more.

i read alot of good things about the darton mid. It looks like a good idea

Where have you read that. I would like to read it. I looked at them but decided to use GE.

The darton has a small groove around the top and a series of small holes. I believe that this design will hold more heat and could possibly cause turbulance with the coolant.

The GE's on the other hand look to be more open at the top. I wish I could have got dimensional information on both of them. If so a calculation of surface area at the top of the sleeve could have been made and see if they are close or not. Picture wise I do not think so.
