So I was coming upon the last stuff needed to get my high comp beast on the road. Hit a snag, got some rot in cylinder one and some bad pitting. Boreover might work, but I just got a killer deal from Darton to re-sleeve the block

It feels like overkill to sleeve a na block but still, maybe raise compression to 12.5:1 on forged pistons? Add a hundred shot of nitrous?

Thoughts?
I will just have you know that sleeving a block is not cheap so get atleast a complete quote first. I think mine was alittle less than $2k. But, it can be a block that lasts forever for multiple builds over time and can take almost any abuse especially all motor. The head is more likely to fail. A plus is that Darton leaves the deck of the cylinder walls 0.002'-0.005" (I used 0.002") taller for extra head gasket insurance. Imo its not necessary for the na but can be a confident long term block with no mechanical worries, as long as a blown tune doesnt gash walls. Still need other internals for high compression nitrous too.

Daily, I car pool, and live close enough to ride my bicycle to work, have a 12 Altima (for the misses) and this will be a run and gun special. Once it's done, I'll be picking up a z for twin turbo build, and this will remain daily. Eventually it'll go to hpde, but will stay in full street mode, maybe a light cage, but will remain all motor. (I don't mind is being ricey, loud, or no power through the city just cruising, it's part of the charm of the engine set up.)

Currently has 11.5:1 compression, I have a full ported and polished head, fully rebuilt with rz cams, springs, ti retainers, and fresh valves, ready to be bolted in, and have a hedman full race header, 3" stromung exhaust.
That would be a wild ride to have. DId I miss a build thread?

Gay.......site forced a password reset for my password being 366 days old..........:thinking:


This Fort Knox stuff needs to stop. It's ridiculous the level of security here. Is the CIA using our site for secret communication or something? :lmao:

Water left sitting in the cylinder for over a year. Went to hone to clean it up, got some good scoring til I noticed the pitting. I can bore over but I like a nice thick sidewall with this motor.

I'm reaching out to see if I can get some custom forged 12.5:1 pistons made. I'm running joes 11.5:1 with h beams and a knife edged crank, as well as a 9lb flywheel and stage 3 clutch.

The head is fresh, and hasn't been installed yet.

Pretty much traffic came to a stop and the kid was doing about 60 and on snapchat not paying attention

Well things got worse for me. Turns out the ppl haven't had insurance since 2017! Would love to know how the fuck they got away with this. So I might just be getting rid of everything. If I do this there will be a big for sale post if I decide to go this way
