Subaru Stars ej22t bore or sleeve?

I was wondering what my best option would be with my ej22t. I want to fit pistons that are .02 inches (not mm) over sized. Should I get the blocked bored out or sleeved? Any opinions and options would be great thanks


*edit*
Sorry, I mean .02 inches...i dont know why i said .02 mm

I was also wondering if anyone can give me a general price for both professional boring and/or sleeving

quirt crawford has said that .02" is pretty much all you can do if you decide to bore it.... really what it comes down to is what kind of power you want to make.....

0.02 mm you can 'hone' out. That's not much. Even 0.020 inch you could probably 'hone' out.

Sleeve if you want in increase displacement substantially.

With boring you can go up to 400 HP (bored within reason)
With sleeving you can go up to 700 HP

With boring, you are not in a very cost-preventative upgrade zone, but you can fairly inexpensively get the right parts ALONG with the boring to build some major horse power and still be reliable and not too pricey.. With sleeving, you had better go with major internal components to take advantage of the money you spent, which can be around 8 thou for complete built long block. However I'm not sure how much sleeving alone would cost... But sleeving just for the sake of durability... is quite costly, and unless you're running high ponies, like 400+ The fully closed, over engineered EJ22t block will handle it with the proper components and builder...

Thanks for the reply. im going to look into sleeving i think. get some prices ranges. im doinga build that i think will actually take a while to get all the parts together anyway so I figure I may as well just go all out. We'll see what I can do. Again, thanks a lot

I ran a 2.2t block bored out to 99.5 for 3 seasons in a sandrail. It almost always was running 22 psi on 111 fuel. Last year I found a small crack in one cylinder and had the block sleeved with dartons.
