If you have the money, sure go for it. I'll just keep plugging along with my my stock blocks. I can go faster than my car is legal to run with just a stock block and a cast crank.What do yall think?
I ran a stock 4-bolt main 14.5-1 compression 400 with a cast crank and stock rods for many years--it had iron heads and ran 10.80's the way I drove it across the country with 3.73 gears; and with a 200 shot it ran 9.87. I'd probably still be using it if I hadn't put so many miles on it that it needed to be bored out to the next size--I traded it to a friend who had a block that cleaned up at .030 over, so I put all my stuff in that block, which turned out to have a crack in it! The block I have now is only .020 over and has splayed caps, bushed lifter bores and a ton of little tricks done to it--cost me $200!What kind of HP do you have in a stock block?
