3 Inch Predator?

Has anyone tried to put a 3 inch sleeve and piston in the hemi predator? Is there more room between the head bolts on the pred vs the clone with a 3 inch bore? Thinking about building an outlaw pred motor

There is a 3" open clone for sale in the classifieds, don't know how he did it but its making some nice HP !!!!

I thought about putting the pred crank in a clone but wanted to try out the hemi pred. The thing I don't like about 3 inch bores on clones is how close the sleeve is to the head bolts. Wasn't sure if there was more meat on the pred cylinder

^this is true..... which Honda block is the 3 inch? And I wonder what the stroke is compared to the predator?

Well I went out to HF and picked up the only hemi pred they had. Already have a mild gx200 built. Wanted to try the pred. Was looking at sleeving it for a 3 inch piston but may just go with a 2.815 piston. Haven't seen/heard of someone building a 3 inch bore predator.

If it's only .200 I don't see ya u couldn't sleeve it... I would go for it lol sleeves are only about 50 bucks

Did you sleeve the block? Also looks like a dome was machined on the top of the piston. I would love to see the build list on that beast.
