Interesting... Possibly An Alternative to Sleeving
« on: January 31, 2012, 10:39:29 pm »
I was checking out b20vtec.c om and I came across CSS (Cylinder Support System).

It appears to be a "properly" installed block guard that turns an open deck back to a close deck. Basically, the block is machined and a block guard is pressed fit between the cylinder walls and the block creating the "closed" deck.

I was about to ramble on about how much better sleeves are and blah blah blah but that is cheap! Def something to look into.
