Supply, Fit, Bore and Hone 79.00mm Dry Sleeve Closed Deck for 1.6L EcoBoost Block
SBD have designed and tested a closed deck version of the 1.6L EcoBoost block, this is to allow the block to cope with sustained high boost levels and overcome issues that have been seen with the standard block distorting and even cracking causing engine failure.
We can modify either a used condition block (in most cases even damaged blocks with cracked liners) or a new block (block provided by customer). The block is fully machined out on CNC machine, then new Darton sleeves are then pressed into the block to an exact finished height ready to use. The block can be used with a standard head gasket. The block strength is significantly increased, due to the way the liners are not only supported by the original casing but then support each other and then fit tightly to the edge of the block. The improvement in strength not only allows for use with all our current range of kits, but is capable of sustaining much greater outputs which will be developed in the future.
It is recommended that the rods and pistons are also upgraded, which gives further durability to cope with the high stresses of motorsport.
