Default Anyone know if a 326 can be sleeved to a 4.120" bore, and ballpark what that costs?

Dying to put a .030" over 389 in my Lemans with 400 pistons/heads. Prices for A body 64 389 or 65-66 389 block seem rather much to me and most of them have been left outside.

I've got 2 known good 326 blocks. For the prices I've seen for a 389 that I don't know if good plus the costs to machine said block, I'm thinking might be better price-wise to sleeve a 326 that I have.

Don't know that much about sleeving just what I read so I don't know if I'd need dry sleeves o wet sleeves. Don't know if it's possible to do sleeves that big on a 326 or if anyone has even attempted it.

Can anyone "ball park" approximately what 8 sleeves would cost? (If plausible)

Please don't ask why LOL. Yes, I'm crazy.

Not even worth your time. Well over 1000 $, a lot more than that. Buy my std bore 400 block with splayed billet caps, 4.25 stroke rotating assembly. 1300$ for the block same for rotating assembly, Ross, billet 4340 rods,Eagle, balanced.New
