block guards hinder cooling. honda uses the open deck design for really good cooling. its why our engine can run at 7000 rpm beating on it all day and still be good. by installing the block guard u reduce the coolant flow in the cylinder head which can cause problems. its really un necessary unless u plan to see 450+

Running this said "20 psi", you'd guess you'd be around what hp range? 300? 350?

Stock sleeves are good between 400-500hp on a good tune. Leave the sleeves alone. As long as you have a good tune you will be fine.

GE's design is the only one that has an acceptable cooling design. there have been plenty of members on here that have run a GE guard and had no problems. If you want it for piece of mind then I don't see what it could hurt. Just have the blockguard installed properly and you should fine.

I run a GE block gaurd with no over heating problem.With a good block gaurd design and correct installation there are really no issues.That being said,It's been proven that it's not really needed to run one.Insurance I guess.
