M54B30 euro

Dear fanatics..

Recently I've bent a rod.. More on that with pics later. I've decided to rebuilt the engine for high boost with cp/arrow and some p&p and whatever comes to my head later.. I've been successfully running on 10 psi for two years.. Walls r clean, pistons r fine and no signs of detonation. The bent rod was a mistake of mine by overfueling. I will post in details and pics soon of the hopeful built.

To first start, my baby is a euro engine. I just got confused, I was sure it has liners so I can bore it to 84.50 mm but I am now confused if it is NikaSil. I know the US version is for sure with sleeves.. Can u confirm the same for euro one?

If it is indeed NikaSil.. Should I forget boring and order custom 84mm and rebuild? VAC recommends the + one.

Thanks for ur feedback

According to RealOEM, both US and Euro blocks have the same part number. So I'd say it's probably like the US version with sleeves.
