Which Block to Use?????

Post  flowerz-489 on August 25th 2010, 9:39 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.

it depends on what you want out of it.the eliminator ultra block will go to 4.700 bore and a A460 will do 4.600.the ultra comes 4.500 standard.the A460 comes 4.360 i think,but i never had one.the ultra cost a little more but will go bigger.i do have a ultra. Very Happy Lem can fix you up with a A block and anything else you may need.

Lem Probably has some a Blocks in Stock, so you get it fast. Call Chuck Stevens if you want to check out the Eliminator Blocks, could take some time to get one. Both are excellent.

That site gave me an attack warning... but who knows.


I have Chuck Stevens # am not sure if he wants it posted but his hours are M-F 8 to 5 Pacific.

http://www.eliminatorproducts.com/ to familiarize yourself with their blocks and options.
