Does he have the regular twin disk or HD? There is a big difference. The regular twin disk would not hold anywhere near that power.

Here are some more pics of our Evo X stroker kit. The new rod piston combo weighs 850 grams. The stock rod/piston combo weighs 1200 grams. Thats a nice little weight savings.

Looks good. Im glad to see somebody take a different approach then some other shops that are doing something similar. I think the sleeves here will show a better option then most. Keep us updated and good luck.

Has anyone actually reached the point where sleeves are necessary? Or is this just a precautionary measure at this point? Also, what kind of $$ does sleeving cost?

Sleeving the X block cost$1350 including the sleeves. Thats if you drop off a bare block. Nobody knows the limit of the stock sleeves but we know that this car will be more then pushing those limits.
