Default LS2 Sleeve Installer????

I was wondering if there is a recommended sleeve installer in the midwest area that anyone else has had good luck with? I have called Darton and they gave me a phone number to a shop but they never answer the phone. I was thinking about sending my block to RED since it seems as he has had very many good comments on this board.
Any info would help.

Call Stealy in East Moline. Jeff is very busy but he really knows his stuff.

My block is at Auto Ron's right now he has sleeved gen 1 blocks for me before but they are not set up to do the LS blocks so I gave Jeff a call and he also is not sleeving the LS2 block.

Default LS2 sleeving

I haven't trained anyone in the Midwest to machine the LS blocks for either wet or dry liners. It is not something that you want just anyone to do. The resleeves require precision equipment and know how else they will fail.

I did most of the design work on these sleeves so I know more than a little about what it takes to install them correctly.

Give me call tomorrow after nine am my time. Lots of fires here in S. Ca. but fortunately none so far in my area.

Default LS2 Sleeves

I visited Steve's shop at Race Engine Development in Oceanside CA. He worked with Darton to design the latest sleeves for the LS2 block. He did a LS2 for me and it looks sweet. He knows his stuff also !
