I know some of you might actually wonder where I have been!! First off I finally found a job as a Surveyor so that leads to no computer time. Then I was rear ended and that ruptured a disc in my back. So it's all been nothing but joy.

Well,,, I'm a month out of surgery, I'm a lot better than before the surgery!

I was just wondering if anyone has built one of these engines yet, I figure it would be in a truck puller if they had.

Haven't heard of any, not sure the blocks have truly been produced.

I doubt the pullers would use them.  They are usually ci limited.  Drag cars would be the most likely user

Really?  How much heavier than an Eliminator or A block?

I remember when they were first out for purchase and all the drag racers felt like they would be to heavy. If I had a ton of cash and a local header fabricator I think it would be cool to build one in my show truck.

About 1.8 inches worth on the deck doubt it would be more than 30 lb.

I can't imagine even 50# being a deal breaker if you could have over 750 ci for a drag only deal.

Takes a bunch of power to make up 50# on a 1900# dragster, when their are plenty if aluminum blocks around.
