We have the resources to offer any S65 solution, but re-coating the bores can get expensive. Dropping in Mahle pistons is an easy solution as well.

Quick tidbit: Alusil is a brand owned by Kolbenschmidt Pierburg AG. Nikasil is a brand owned by Mahle.

Our client requested sleeves since he will be beating this engine HARD and they offered some extra security. (The engine was in good shape btw) We have had 100% success with CP Pistons and either Darton or LA Sleeve solutions, so its a no brainer.
Thank you Mike, I was just wondering cause i almost sleeved my block cause i wanted to push my car beyond the limits but with an aluminum block,i'm limited .
Whats involved in the stage 3 head,is it ported & polished cause the stock heads are state of the art.
What can you tell me more about the valve springs ?
Aftermarket or stocks I've seen are beehive design but these aren't ?
Good Luck with the build and great job guys
