Who: Darton
What: M.I.D. sleeve kit
Rides: Evo x/4b11
The sleeve masters at Darton have a new trick up their sleeves (pun definitely intended). The new M.I.D. kit for the 4B11 engine now allows for boring anywhere from 86mm-90mm while still handling 50+ pounds of boost. For those of you not already familiar with Darton's modular sleeve designs, this kit will allow replacement of single sleeves in the rare case of damage. I.E. if you crack one sleeve you simply replace it, instead of having to re-machine the whole block. And if that's not enough to convince you, Darton is offering an installation of the kit with a rapid 15-day turnaround!
