Thanks,
any other opions?

I think a sleeve would be better in the long run because if he does scratch the sleeve, he can either hone or bore it instead of replating.......

Sleeves are not good because they aren't as economical is plating...they have to be bored every few piston kits because they aren't as strong as plating. Also I've heard of things like ports not lining up and the sleeves themselves moving...I might just be crazy though.

Plating is the norm nowadays. Do it right and you won't regret it. Send it off to Eric Gorr or another reputable replater.

Gorr uses US Chrome - you'll have to look hard to find any complaints about their plating. Go with the plating since sleeves reduce the rate of heat transfer from the cylinder to the water jacket.
