Our process of installing our sleeves.  Of course we have to clean parts before installing.



Putting them in the freezer helps them shrink just enough so the going in easier, just make sure you get all of the condensation off first before putting silicone around it.

The block is ready to get bored and honed as soon as the piston and rings come in.

 It takes just as long or longer to cut away the excess silicon from the bottom of the sleeves as it does to apply and install the sleeves rolleyes

  Troy did that and we worked on adding the 2'' on the spoiler for extra height. There is a slight radius in the piece we're
adding to so when there is a bend its not straight across. Theirs a 3/16'' gap in the middle when we lay the straight cut
piece where it belongs so we have to taper the ends. Never easy rolleyes
