In our experience, people who actually pay the money and buy engines do not have such a simple process...

How many nikasil/alusil engines have you built/sleeved? How many sleeves have you supplied to people with these engines? We have done a bunch .

If you did not know, we are the largest global stocking dealer of BMW specific engine components.
Your post comes across as confrontational and is a little off-putting. BMRLVR was not attacking, rather, he was informing the community while showing rationale behind his question, Are you capable of, or have you successfully bored and honed an ausil block to factory specs?

You may have been working on BMW's for a while, but you're a relative newbie on this forum. "If you did not know..." BMRLVR (to put it mildly) has quite a bit of first-hand mass scale engine experience.
