    Finally got a piston over to Wagamon Brothers. Hopefully should have my custom pistons from Diamond Racing in a couple of weeks.

    Also on another note Lamettry's finally had a chance to review my photos and is in the process of putting together a quote for me.

    you have to have some sort of hard metal bore for the cylinder walls or the heat would be too great for an aluminum piston and aluminum cylinder walls it can't be done. a sleeved block is the only way to get this effect on a car engine i do believe. some two stroke engines can run a NiCasil coating which is very hard and prevents wear. so to answer your question, an aluminum block will always be sleeved.

    so when "sleeving" is being talked about on a car application, they probably mean that they have to RE sleeve the block to run a bigger piston. you can only bore a cylinder wall so much before you run into problems. some of the more knowledgeable guys in the forum can maybe enlighten you with a number of how much you can bore a stock 3L block.

    Subscribing, this thread is one of the best build threads I've seen in a long time. You can see high hp/uber suspension builds all day but there is alot of new stuff being done here.

    Also while you are ordering all the stuff from the UK, why not grab a Mondel Trip/Fuel computer with the upgraded fuel pump sender and temp sensor? Beats the everliving crap out of the dash clock recontent.

    Buy the trip computer and let me know... I'm pretty sure your more then capable of doing it though man. It's plug and play for the most part. Plus there is a nice how-to write up somewhere linked on the boards.
