Which Block to Use?????

Post  flowerz-489 on August 25th 2010, 7:39 pm

Im just wondering which stock blocks are the strongest ? Or are they all about the same? What do I look For? Are truck or car blocks better? Im planning on building a 500 ci stroker with A460 heads. I can get a dive block are they any good? DIVE-6015-A2B ,thanks

Stock Blocks

Are good to 650 to 750 Horsepower. After that then you best look at the A-460 block. You'll be money ahead with a A-460 block. I built 3 motors with stock blocks and when they come apart theirs usually nothing left to them.

From what I have heard if you are planning to make it 4 bolt main the time you buy a block,new 4 bolt main caps,and have all the machine work done have the block cut you will be money ahead buying a new block for alittle bit more and will have room to grow.

I was told the stock block can handle alot with 2 bolts and a stud girdle. As far as stock blocks go , Are they all the same strength?

Girdles SUCK like Pro Comp Shyt... if you insist on a 2 bolt block have a pair of Main straps made for it... or have it 4 bolt splayed caps installed....if you are going to use a girdle just throw $200 in the trash and you will be as good as a girdle...

if that d1ve block you have is a thick web like a d0ve is then you can do pritty well with it,if it's a thin web i'd keep looken.some d1ve's are thick and some are not,i have one that is.like the others have said already,if your gona 4bolt a stock block just go for the A460 or elminator block.also if your not gona spend money on a good crank{4340}then just run a stock 2bolt block cuz it'll stand more than a china cast crank.

if the bottom of the block,where the cap's bolt up,is machined flat it's a good'n.the others have a cast area from cap to pan rail.
