Re: Cosworth K24A Sleeved Block ( wow!!! )

DAMN...I NEED THAT!!!

so...I am in need of sleeves for K24. I know Golden Eagle mfg is making them, but they want almost $1000 and I have to send them my block.

Darton is working on sleeves but they are still a few months out.

Anyone have any other sources for K24 sleeves??

About 10 months ago, I was contacted by a company called ERL

This what they wrote me

Thanks for the inquirey. We use Darton sleeve blanks for all of our
sleeving and CNC machine them in house. We offer sleeving on all Honda
B16,B18,F22,F23,H22,H23 as well as The F20(S2K)and K20 and K24.

The Darton MID is available for the above motors as well as the D16. We are a research and manufacturing company with hundreds of years combined machining experience and engineering. We supply HART (Honda America Race Team, Pro RWD V6), Joe Demeree (NDRA Hot Rod FWD) and many others. We offer Short Block blueprinting and building services. The Superdeck 2 (Deckplate to raise deck height)system we offer is patented and has been featured in Modified mag and Precision Engine.

It is available for B16 to B18 conversion,B18 to B20,
H22 to 6" rod lengths. If you retain the stock deck height, we use our
superdeck 1 system that CNC machines the head of the sleeve and the interior cavity after the sleeve is installed for a perfect press fit on our CNC
billet Brace to close the deck on open deck blocks. This is the only way to
not distort the cylinders while supporting the higher thrust loads that
comes with increased HP.

This offers excellent cooling for street as well as
strip use. We also don't epoxy our sleeves in as many of the economy
installers do. We align hone every block and torque plate cylinder hone
every block because every aluminum block moves when you remove the stock
sleeve and as it is stress relieved. In over 4 years we have had 0 sleeve/
quality issues.

Our warranty on blocks is if we did it wrong, we'll fix
it.We have most blocks in stock to do an exchange on your core or we will
machine yours if you like. We have Brand new K24's in stock to sell outright
or exchange.
Check our web site for a dealer in your area and our other products. If you
are a store/shop with no dealer in your area, contact Sean for possible
dealer pricing. Sorry this is so long, but it's hard to condense all that we
do.

http://www.erlperformance.com is the website... I will try to get some pictures

it appears that full-race.com is a dealer... I will link them to this thread.

The car is primarily built for road racing. Lag of turbo size and other motor internals to go drag racing with it, but you never know. I might build the other K motor I have here for that. K24 block and a 05 Type-S Head... hehe... Shouldn't have a problem with keeping it cool either. The machined slots and holes line up perfectly with the gasket.
This is going in our turbo EP Civic. Motor has been swapped for the Type-S rather than the stock motor.
I guess we will have to wait and see.. this is going into a cosworth sponsored car, so I am pretty sure they know what they are doing.

I have actually being in a ford sierra cosworth RS500... :wow:

it looks really beefy. how do you think the cooling is?
I bet it's pretty good because aluminum disapates too much heat. You use 1/3rd of the heat to make power, 1/3rd in the coolant system, and 1/3rd goes out the exhaust. Those numbers are lower with aluminum so with those thick walls its probably about right now.
