IMO... stay away from that gong show of a forum, I know lots of guys that were band by the retarded owner/s of that site for nothing more than differing opinions. That site is so bad with BS that I almost went to the dark side and was going to build a 350 clevevy.
Barry, are the mains on that aluminum block solid or not
and is it setup for a cleveland cam or not
, I understand some of the old aluminum sk blocks that were cast using the old iorn pattern were cracking through the mains at over 750hp.
I believe and know Tod was having casting problems, this was a reason why I had to wait 4yrs for blocks.
I could not justify the extra cost (holy shit!) of putting together one of these unproven alum blocks together from mme for a high hp app and asked for deposits back in march, 2011.
IMO ,if Tod could of made a good connection to get raw castings from China we would have had good blocks a long time ago, with some exceptions, I do not trust some of the american casting tech.
