Default 2.2T block questions

I plan on using 100mm pistons in my EJ22T and was wondering if anyone had the limits the 2.2 block can be bored to?

Thanks for the help.

The largest std bore size is 96.905 - 96.915 mm

The enlarging limit is 0.5 mm.

So I would probably say 100mm pistons are too large.

yeah I am considering it. How much you figure it will run to sleeve the block for 100mm pistons Ben.

Thanks

LOTS of money. I'd say 700 at a minimum but probably closer to 4 figures.

Because it would be stronger than an EJ257.

<rant>

The 257 isn't the worlds strongest block , its sleves are actually quite thin from the factory. Its also not the end-all be-all solution just because it has a tiny bit more displacement. Its REALLY easy to build a stronger block. If you want to see factory blocks that are tough he's already starting with one. Thick sleves and already has a closed deck. If I were to build something mildly a 2.2 block is a great start, much better IMHO than the 2.5

sleeve a block is not as expensive 700.
the cost of sleeves and machine work to open
up the cylinder bores and press the sleeves.

just call a few of the machine shops in your town
and ask them if they have sleeved blocks before.
and of course how much they charge.

good luck..thats what i am buying myself for a bday gift
to myself...sleeves for my 2.2 to 2.5 conversion...
