Sleeved Block

Just wondering what your guys opinions are when it comes to purchasing a new short block for my 2013.

I have the blower going on now and want to eventually push no more than 850-900HP on E85. I see there are blocks rated to handle that which aren't sleeved but the general consensus seems to be a sleeved block is the better idea (and more expensive of course)

I got a black friday quote from Holcomb Motorsports which apparently is still more expensive than what he charged one of my friends outside of the holiday season but even still its a better deal than and other sleeved blocks I ran across.

So what do you guys think? Do I need the sleeved block or would a regular forged block rated for 1000HP do the job for me?

Forged block is fine. You don't need to sleeve it. I have beat on my car more than anyone on here and I know that for a fact. I sprayed the piss out of it. And will be doing it more than anyone can imagine soon.

Just get a good set of rods and Pistons. Full arp hardware and you will be set.

Ok great. That should save me enough to upgrade the fuel system!
