is there anything stopping a get engine from being resleeved to alow a much larger piston??

Yes def that. A lot of us have access to a machine shop. I was simply curious if Ther was limiting factor like an oil galley or something.

Would be cool project to try. Biggest is sourcing a piston. Yes you can have a batch made for a lot of $ but maybe find another stock piston that can be used.

I'm sure you can source an existing piston of larger diameter that would fit the rod pin. Make your new sleeve fit that piston. Using pre-existing parts and making them fit is how hot rodders of old days made power. I've seen many Chevrolet rods in Ford engines and Chrysler intake manifolds on Oldsmobile engines.

If you didn't catch the hint it doesn't have to be a Honda piston, it just needs to fit the rod pin.

exactly... back in the single cam Honda days we used Suzuki vitara pistons in turbo builds.

I find that funny how many Ruckus owners do have machine shop access yet how few people on car forums do.

I don't recall what the bore to stroke ratio is stock but it is best to keep it square. Or more even. Makes it less stressful on internals, when high reving. Like a b16 vs a b20. My 2 cents

Not exactly true. If you're looking for a general purpose engine yes square is optimal. However look up ANY high revving engine and you'll find a shorter stroke and larger bore, to an extent. The big limiting factor is weight. Therefore if you use a lighter piston with less skirting you can have the larger bore and retain the same weight.

On the other hand if you want a low rpm torque engine a longer stroke and smaller bore work great.

I would think the water coolant passageways is the limit too

Agreed on water passages of the cylinder head. Maybe the studs as well.

Now if aftermarket heads have the water passages moved back a bit.... The ones in cylinder can be relocated. You're putting a sleeve in so that side is covered. I've also thought about if an air cooled head could be used and just run coolant through the cylinder ports.

I love performance and technology. Thinking outside the box. I'm waiting to see a camless head come from Europe. They have been making camless car engines for around a decade now and Alpha Romeo has them in production vehicles already. Almost all Alpha engines are now camless. If you haven't heard of a camless engine yet or the possibilities that has opened up I suggest doing a little research. To give you a crumb of information to make it interesting consider this. With the valves under computer control you can have an extremely economical profile running where a 4 door sedan is delivering the smoothest ride and over 40 mpg, maybe even over 50mpg. Then with the quick stomp of the accelerator the computer switches to a pro-stock NHRA drag car profile. You can't make a cam run a square profile, but this setup can.

:meh: stoned and dreaming

looks like we need some trash blocks to cut in half and see what were working with as far coolant passages and thickness
