Really? That is an excellent kudo to the manufacturer.
Are you aware where one can find a database of engines that are sleeved from the factory?
It makes sense that if one just needs to re-ring the pistons, put new sleeves in and redo the head
, that it would be a lot quicker and cheaper than if the block needs to be reamed out and over-sized be installed.
