I would hate to chunk my 401 if it's been bored to the maximum allowed. Is sleeving an option?

yes sleeves can be installed, and there are a lot of advantages to them. It makes future rebuilds a piece of cake, you can change displacement by a sleeve/piston change, it makes rebuilds go very quickly, etc. etc.

Sleeves are reliable, too. Truckers have been using them for years, and AA Fuel Dragsters/Funny Cars use them, too. How do you think they can rebuild the motors in less than an hour!?

Having one sleeved also makes for great insurance incase you break a ring or drop a valve. If the cylinder gets fubared you can just have the cylinder resleeved again.

Classic car buffs do it all the time in order to keep their original numbers matching engine. Nice part is you can use stock pistons again. I only know one person that had it done only because oversized pistons were not available for his brand motor. Choice was to sleeve the block or have oversize pistons made ($$$$). Sleeving is expensive so it's usually done only to rare or expensive blocks and the 401 would qualify. no sense in sleeving a 360 since they are still plentiful.
