    Sleeving a block

    Any thoughts of sleeving a block? I dropped a valve and it screwed up a cylinder. I am not convinced that its a good option. The motor will see lots of boost.

    Thanks

    I'd think you can buy a block for a lot less then the cost of re-sleeving one cylinder.

    ^This.

    Plus IDK if I'd trust it with a lot of boost. Peace of mind plays into much of my decisions.

    Block is around $800 the sleeve with labor is under $200. I agree with peace of mind just REALLY sucks I finally had it ready to tune.

    Yes used ones are out there. If I can find it seems the 6.0L blocks are very much in demand.
