Is that secret stuff only needed for drag racing or does it apply to mud racing too?

Are there any quiet paved rural roads close by for late night test and tune?
I imagine that would rattle a few windows - and sound cool too.

The problem with that is, making a blast down the road, only to have a big ass deer run out in front of you!!

But back on topic.  Is this done only as a fix for a damaged block, or does it actually add strength over the factory deal?   Mine is still in the box.

doesn't add any strength , but when you burn a piston up bad and hurt the cylinder wall you can change that sleeve without distorting the cylinders beside it.
