If this was for a small stroker build ? wouldnt the D9 block be a better choice, because of the slightly longer cylinders ?

and just how many have you ever broken, from the hp being to much..........Zero Truth of the matter is that a 2 bolt Block, D0VE or D9TE same hp rating between 750 and 800 and then you have to get either 4 bolt mains or aftermarket block....or have the Main caps Strapped......cuz no Girdle will fix cap Fretting...(walking)

Georgia..... Georgia..... Your on my mind..... Laughing

IMO with 4 bolt caps yes the dove is better, with 2 bolt caps they might as well be the same block. I've seen a couple d9's thick enough for 4.500 to and seen some doves on the thin side, so it's a crap shoot as far a cylinder bores......
