Default Block guard, yes or no??

I have a turbo gsr im in the process of building. Going to be forged bottom end and im debating on using a block guard with it. Any problems, personal experience. Only shooting for around 350ish whp. Thanks

Put the money towards a good tune instead, even at ~350WHP, people have done that on stock internals.....Tune is key

That is the closest thing to a "blockgaurd" I would ever use!

b20 sleeves will handle 350-400 but there is very little material between the cylinders which is the failing point.

No block guard, all it will really do is create a hot spot in the cylinders and with the cheap ones restrict coolant flow. I know of several stock internal gsr motors that made over 350whp. I personaly would run stock internals and save for sleeves. But just my .02
