you have to make a relationship w/ a machine shop to get good prices. Bring in a couple blocks/heads and watch the prices drop

CRX304, any dyno testing planned for this. Maybe eventually when you upgrade your turbo? I'm seriously considering doing this to a spare B18b block and am curious to know how well it will hold up. I'm not asking anyone to go blow their engine up on a dyno for testing, but I'd like to see some dyno sheets of filled blocks and at what pressures these things can handle.

Check out your local Napa. The small rinky dink place by my house has a machine shop in the back that's 3x the size of the store and when I went in there the floor was covered with tagged blocks and heads either waiting to be worked on or finished. The prices at Napa are also pretty damn good, much better than a lot of speed shops charge for labor alone.

Which expands at a rate most similar to stock sleeves, aluminum or cast iron?

the aluminum block is getting filled so you would use the aluminum filler. the filler is not attaching to the iron sleeves.
