DESCRIPTION 
THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE BLOCK GUARD SET.
We are very excited to announce yet another piece to the puzzle, with our end goal of providing our customers everything they need to build their own 400-1000hp J-Series from their own home/garage with OFF THE SHELF  HalferLand Performance Products! 

 In the never ending goal to offer the best parts possible for our customers and even with all the success of our original HalferLand Block Guards have shown, there were still some things we thought could be addressed and improved...so we did! Our HalferLand NEW AND IMPROVED V.3 800+HP Guaranteed (1000+HP capable) CnC 6061 Billet Aluminum Block Guards are a step up from our V1 &V2 Guards, now offering improved fitment, easier installation, additional features to keep the guard from dropping AND will cost 10% less then our original V1/V2's! We addressed the common issue with Block Guards offered in the past by other companies, who built straight angled guards, in the end they would drop in block after some time during use. Our guards are not those, we address the angled coolant passages of the OEM block by designing a taper into guards, securely and tightly wedging the guard into the passages... physically making it impossible for the guard to drop into the block and distributing even load across all cylinders and the block. Along with that we also measured over 30+ OEM blocks from used 250k miles to brand new, insuring our fitment will be the best ever offered in regards to a block guard..and our reviews prove that.

Our HalferLand Performance V3 Block Guards are also a great reliable alternative to the messy/uneven block filler, more expensive weld in block guards ($1200) and of course WAY more affordable then the expensive $2500 full sleeves (and needing Block machining) procedure's that bigger race teams use to sure up/support the cylinders, but all the while also providing the block and OEM sleeves additional rigidity to avoid warping cylinders or cracking a sleeve under high load and cylinder pressure.

Our Block Guards have been tested during multiple seasons in some of our partnering companies 800-1200whp Race Cars. They will be 100% backed with our HalferLand Performance (1) Year Guarantee and warranty (up to 1yr against any deformation or cracks), insuring the parts will not see any fatigue or deformation up to 800hp! These Block Guards have been pushed well beyond 800hp, but we feel to run these safely in a daily vehicle (The majority of our customers) we suggest running them at or below 800hp daily.....while Track Orientated Cars may push a little more (as long as the OEM sleeve will cooperate lol ;) . Our block guards have also been designed to allow the coolant to freely flow through the block and will ensure the daily High Horsepower motors will not overheat....unlike some expensive sleeves, or fully concreting the block (messy, time consuming and not guaranteed to work, usually blocking coolant through the blocks water passages, which over time may deteriorate into a sand like mush). You can see our CnC Billet Aluminum block guards come with the passages already pre-drilled into them....as simple as installing and that's it!!  
Also being machined from Aircraft Grade Billet 6061 Aluminum, they will naturally pull heat from the cylinders reducing combustion temps and reducing the risk of knock or detonation, allowing you to add more timing into the tune while being safe. More Timing and cooler combustion temps = MORE HP !!


* INSTALL NOTICE*
Please note, there has been some confusion on the install of our new HalferLand Performance V2 J32/J35 Cylinder Block Guards. From the V1 we have added new features, one being to aid in the ease of installation. This new features creates what can be considered a V shape to the guard. Unlike our version 1 guard that put lots of tension on the cylinder walls and required a hammer tight fitment, our new V2 puts less strain on the cylinder walls UNTIL it reaches the installation height (1-3mm below deck surface) and you'll find that install is a breeze. The guards will initially slip right into the coolant passages, which worried some customers. However, once the guards reaches it's install height of 1-3mm BELOW deck height (the surface the cylinder heads install onto and where the heads and block meet is the deck height) you will find the wedge V shape comes into play and the guard snugs up to the cylinders/block and will not move or drop any lower into the coolant passages or engine block. This 100% was a feature we built into the guard, yet another step in the right direction to offering the best, most affordable Honda J-Series Engine Performance parts on the market. Enjoy!! ;)



INSTALLATION
*Please be sure to ALWAYS wear gloves when handling! Due to the precision CnC machining all edges are very sharp! Failure to do so WILL result in cuts*

Our HalferLand Billet Aluminum CnC 800hp J32/J35 Block Guards will be a very simple installation. Please be 100% sure the block is in good condition and is fit for use, as once they are installed they will not come back out. You may choose two different methods of installation, it's up to the customer whether they chose to do this, but you may add a strong epoxy to the perimeter of the guard before install, but it is not required. Unlike other Guards on the market which give them a bad name, our Block Guards tolerances are very tight to keep them from sinking or shifting in the block.  If your guard does drop, your cylinders may be out of round (highly suggest measuring cylinder bore for straightness before install), as our guards are 100% CnC'ed to the precise measurements within less then .0005" of a brand new OEM block.



MAIN INSTALLATION  

- IMPORTANT !!!!!
THE TOP SIDE OF OUR GUARDS WILL HAVE OUR LOGO/COMPANY NAME ETCHED INTO IT!!  LOGO/COMPANY NAME IS UP/TOP SIDE... DO NOT INSTALL THEM BACKWARD/UP SIDE DOWN. AGAIN THE LOGO/NAME SIDE GOES UP, TOWARDS THE HEAD SIDE. 

- Whether which method you choose, we highly suggest having the Block Decked/Milled after installation of the Guards to make sure the deck is straight and true, providing the best seal for you cylinder heads.

- Always wear gloves, as the edges are very sharp and can cut you.

Method 1: You can simply install them into your engine block water passages as listed below, then put the heads back on and be done with it. Be sure the guards are always 1-3mm below the deck surface and not sticking above where it would hit the heads when installed. It's best to have the guards about 1-3mm (4mm max) below the deck surface, which is where the highest combustion pressures take place. Now install the heads and torque them down to recommended torque pressures (If utilizing our HLP Chromoly head studs, be sure to check our store listing for our Torque Specs by HP chart)

Method 2 (SUGGESTED METHOD): If you have the abilities we would recommend this method over the Method #1 , always!. You may install the Block Guards into the engine water passages first (as listed in Method #1) and then take the block to your machine shop to have them deck the matting surface (having the heads done at the same time ensures a flat matting surface and seal). This method assures they are 100% flat and also that the deck surface is flat as well, creating the best head gasket seal possible. 

The installation process is very straight forward. First, locate the "HalferLand Performance" Logo etched onto the guard, this will be the TOP SIDE/TOWARDS YOU. To confirm you have the correct installation side, again the Top Side of the guard will have our company name "HalferLand Performance", which is Up/Top side for install.  
After you determined which side points up (Logo Side up)
simply place the block guard around the cylinders/coolant passage (if you chose to use an epoxy on the guard, apply before this step but it's not necessary and if you do a very light amount should be used), from there the guard will initially easily slide into the coolant passages but once it reaches deck height you will feel the guard start to tighten up. From there continue pushing it in EVENLY all around the guard and passages, until it reaches 1-3mm below the block deck height (Block deck/deck height is the surface the heads install onto) the guards should not sit perfectly flush with the deck but instead just a little (1-3mm) below the deck height, which is where the strongest combustion forces take place. The Guard is designed to easily drop into the coolant passages initially but once it reaches its 1-3mm below deck height install area you will find the guard starts to tighten up and no longer wants to install any further. Once the 1-3mm below deck height is reached, YOU'RE DONE, IT'S THAT EASY! 
Again we do highly suggest milling/resurfacing the block deck after install, which insures a proper seal (same for the heads)

Guards and Pistons
almost forgot to review these. Bought a lot from HalferLand (Stage 2 cams picke dup 27whp, PnP TB, 800 hp pistons and these). Running a 200shot at 515whp/465wtq stock block with zero issue. We run nearly every weekend and have pulled the heads already to check after about 50 runs, the guards were exactly were they were when installed. there pistons also are amazing and allowed us to add 2* more timing then stock (same compression) which we suspect is how cool they run

All of their parts
FYI, I'm just duplicating my reviews for all their products being I ran nothing but HLP Products in my build. They truly deserve praise Personally I've had incredible experience with HLP. There customer service has been great, helpful and insightful. Even helping me with deeper dive questions for my build. Initially I wanted 600hp to the wheels but they advised me due to trans limitations the safer limit would be 500 at the wheel. Well, I had all winter last year to get the car ready, missed most of summer but my 92 Civic Coupe with a J35a3 is finished and running all of HLP lower end parts, their block guards, rods, pistons and now studs. Matched with the built heads they did for me, basically their Stage 2 cams, spring and retainer package, I just got Dyno tuned and made more then I was trying to. So the very first conservative first pull made 565 and 440 on 14psi. I swapped the waste gate spring to 8lbs which was the lightest the tuner had on hand, some more timing and it made 500whp right on the nose ?? HLP really does offer amazing products and they shine when paired together. Thank you guys!

Built entire engine with HPP parts
HalferLand Performance Products has everything you would want. This was the last part installed in my J32a3 06 TL 6SPD. HalferLand Stage 2 cams, 10k rpm valve spring 4 bar map and now block guards (when we had the heads off for cam install, wasn't needed but I wanted to refresh the head gasket for the extra power and man was there extra power we picked up 40whp with the cams and all the other parts. I wanted more ridigity in the block and they fit perfect. I didn't use any cement, just drove them in even and reinstalled the head. The guards have. Slight bevel chamfer that keep them from dropping in the block, very simple ingenious design

Daily 630whp 07' J35a8 TL
Extremely happy and satisfied for choosing HP. These block guards are the best I've ever seen. Even years of installing guards into older D and B series, these are definitely more $ but nowhere near the cost of sleeves. The fitment was beautiful and perfect. I removed the heads after 15k miles for a refresh and the guards are exactly where they should be and we didn't even mill the block, go figure

Solid and affordable
Bought these over full sleeves and CSS. Sleeves run around $1800-$2000 installed, CSS is around $1200 and HalferLand Performance Block Guards are less then $400. I waited to review this until I ran them for a year and they are holding up great. Fitment and installation was spot on pulled the heads and the guards are sitting right where I installed them with no dropping. Considering they've been run over a year of passes at the strip at over 600 to the wheels with zero overheating etc, only pulled the heads cuz I blew a head gasket. Buying a second set for my spare motor ??

Perfect for DIY builders
First, these guards are outstanding quaility. I have used older guards for the single cams back in the day, always having fitment issues or them dropping from very loose tolerances. These were absolutely flawless, installed with the logo up as the install directions state on the website, they initially installed smooth, dropping right in but as the direction stated would happen they tightened up after 1-2mm down into he water jacket and didn't move. I ended up driving them a little further down, around 2.5mm below the deck height which they say 1-3mm is optimal. I have been running them with Hasport mount swap J35a4 into my 99 EK Civic for over 6 months with zero issues whatsoever, which includes zero cooling issues even in this God awful Texas heat

Pair with HalferLand Rods and cant go wrong
See our full review on their rods. Pair theze with their Rods and you can't go wrong. 3 hurt motors (not the rods fault, read our rod review) and the rods are still in perfect shape. We have transfered them between an Auto X, Drag and Endurance engines..

Great part
Only reason it's 4 star is because it took 4 weeks to arrive. They stated it was shipping issues but who knows. Outside that the block guards were exactly as advertised and easy to install. --- HALFERLAND CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE --- We do apologize for any delays. However, We tried our best to provided help and explain to you via email, showing UPS had delays in Georgia for some reason. Unfortunately some things are out of our control but once we were informed of your order delay we made sure to keep an eye on your shipment, which we did and it did deliver after contacting UPS multiple times by our company.

Initially figured why not
Ok I'm going to post the same review I did for their Rods and cylinder supports. Going into building my S2000 swapped J35a4 I spoke to Sean at P2R and Eric I believe at SlickFab. I'll be 100 with all you, those two companies are apparently either fearful of HPP or just don't like them. SlickFab came off as arrogant and straight up salty, just laying into HPP owner, Sean was some what more reserved but pretty much the same. Being competition I took it with a grain of salt and damn happy I did. HPP parts are affordable and soild. As the title stated I figured "why not" because they guarantee and stand behind all their products for 1 yr which is insane and no one does in the performance industry, so I figured even if I break them I'll just get replacements. Well, build is finished, pushed their pistons, Cylinder guards and rods well into 900whp, not engine, to the wheels, backed it down for Time attack here in TX and this entire season had zero issues around 600-750whp constantly, back to back events, multiple runs each event. So pretty much take any competitions words with a grain of salt, Because they sure are salty when speaking about HPP...maybe their pocket book is getting hit and they don't like that. Anyways to HPP keep up the amazing work and I'll definitely be coming back, maybe sponsorship next season?? LOL

A Full year of testing in my daily 600whp Integra
Ok, I waited over a year to review these. I was very hesitant to use these and went with Cylinder Support Systems in my race engine which is a J32a2 making 800hp. I have two other spare J35 blocks and figured for less then CSS even if these didn't work and caused issues I have a $500 fresh block waiting. To keep things short I've been running around 600hp daily for a year and just pulled the heads after torching a piston in Mexico..it didn't like the extra 3° timing I put into the tune Lol. After removing the heads I was actually extremely surprised, The HLP block guards are exactly where I installed them, I never had any cooling issues even daily driven, even when it got very hot here in OK over the summer and running just a half race radiator. I was told by other companies these would be the worst thing under the sun and would destroy my engine...ummm, not even close. I know it's a little long winded but I wanted to give HLP props because they are certainly due. I would recommend these to anyone, and will be using these in my race engines from now on. I can have 3 engine with HLP guards and be good to 800+HP where I would have 1 CSS block or .5 of a Sleeves Block LOL
