from what i read from the site is in theory when you boost a motor it causes some extra load on your walls and these posts help control that load lol i didnt say i would do it just posting up some info and seeing if anyone else has heard of it.

true i shouldnt have said sleeving jason.... .. i figured hey some of us use ebay gasket kits why not a cheap way to protect your block
