Chris makes a good point, it makes sense to use the o-ring on top of a rigid iron sleeve. If you o-ring a close deck converted block, how much of that o-ring is supported by the oem sleeve? He's mentioned it before, but I'd forgotten until he replied here. I'd really like to see the close deck companies address this, but so far all I've seen is praise when one of their blocks makes 1000+ dynojet whp. I'm not discounting the advantages of running a close deck conversion over one, so don't take it that way.
