    Instalation of Block guard

    We are just installing a block guard into our RXP, It does not have any instructions with it, I presume they are just a press fit - Anyone ? I just want to check before I f**k it up

    Cheers

    When you are installing the blockguard are you boring the cylnders to make sure they not out of round? Also what is theneed for a blockguard? I have a turbo car and have not seen the need for blockguards when tuned properly.

    The block guard just goes around the cylinders in the water passage way.
    Its designed to keep the cylinder sleeves from moving at high engine RPM's.

    Its more of a precautionary thing. I have seen them used in cars, I personally have never used one.
