Need information on h22a4 block

I've got to bore my 00 h22a4 block. But I don't know what kind of metal the cylinder walls are. I've read that they are FRM, aluminum, steel sleeved or coated with some material. I just need the right for sure answer so I can take it to the right machine shop. Please help, thank you!!

FRM. Find a shop that can do them because they are bored differently with different stones at a slower rate than a regular block if I remember correctly. If the shop you call hasn't heard of FRM hang up the phone and try somewhere else. Places that deal with Porsche engines will know how to handle it. If there are any local Porsche shops you could contact them and ask them who does their engine machine work and they could steer you in the right direction. If the cylinder walls are too far gone there is always the option of going with a dry sleeve, I have a block with Melling dry sleeves in it and it only cost a few hundred to have this done and you then have more options on pistons than just stock or the Mahle pistons that are designed for the FRM cylinders. Note these are not sleeves like the big boys use for turbo builds, this is simply where the block is over bored a few millimeters and a thin iron sleeve is pressed in to give the block a new wearing surface
