    Re: JohnBoy's Turbo build

    Alright guys I was looking at the motor today and seen that it looks like theirs no actule sleeve's in the block. so does anybody know how far you can bore out the a20? I first thought it was sleeved so I though it would be easy but then I seen the mains were kind of in the way.

    I was going though the engine parts last night. an I started wondering if the heavy ass mounts are necessary? has any one made lighter ones in place of the cast ones?
