The LS9 block is a better starting point to sleeve, IF budget allows, due to piston squirters, billet main caps, bigger head bolts, and it’s cast from a better alloy, which does add a little weight to it, but makes it stronger as well.

Their FB page has multiple posts showing power gains over much of the competition

That should easily go 8s at 3250#s

The LS9 takes 12 mm head bolts too. They can add that as an option also.
I already have the ls1 sleeved. We bought it from the original owner that way, it's held up since 02 auto crossing so it should be ok still looks new... $4500 for the Short block ready to go isn't that bad of a deal I thought. I could be wrong but the sleeves themselves and the machine work cost close to that from looking around google. now this year im just going to bore it out since i was getting the dome pistons and replacing the flat tops. Car went 9.98 with the nitrous cam from my old 370 and a fast, this year i have the money to spend and make it right for what I want it to do.
