So one guy say's he thinks the aluminum XR2 will only go 4.1" bore. And everyone repeats it.

There is no reason this block in aluminum can't go at least 4.185". After all the other aluminum blocks with this bore space go 4.185".

I said I wasn't sure about bore size, I remember asking Kent and I don't remember what he said exactly but I know for a fact he didn't say it would go 4.185"

I'm not saying it won't go 4.185' but I took his word on it.

I think you meant to say hone head and diamonds whistling.. and actually I think that was only for the old head and stones.
They have substantially better stuff than that now.. I think if you have a Target temperature that you can operate the Motor Inn he can hone the block at that temperature..


Yes,I should have been more specific, or used a word like accessories :-p Unlike regular stones and honing heads, One head does one bore size. It all adds up rather quickly!

the question that comes to mind.. is he referring to the block that is sleeved or unsleeved.. I know in the beginning he was selling unsleeved blocks and recommended people use the spray in liner.. I would imagine with a good quality sleeve maybe like a interlocking Darton set up you could get 4.200.+ but I have never physically seen an aluminum block
