    When that car was in the 8’s, it was much larger than 2.8 liter…

    I’m keeping this one on the small side. Should only be 3.810 bore (.030 over stock) with a 3 1/2” stroke. This should build out as 2.6 liters as long as the crank I have checks out.

    lots of room to grow it in this block, but not going to “use it up” on the first build. We are going to sonic check this block so I know thicknesses for the future.

    My goodness is the bottom end of this stout, lol … oversized studs and 1” thick straps. It’s a little odd they went this far with the mains. These blocks have thicker main webbing. I’ve never seen any cap walk on multiple short blocks with stock stuff and just ARP studs.

    I guess I’ve got some head room, lol

    That is one beefy bottom end for sure. That block was built to take a beating.

    No doubt very solid, hopefully next time the pan goes on, I won’t have to see it for a while.

    a task I dreaded that did not disappoint in the dread department… this block had SS O Rings that was pretty smashed and have to come out to deck the block. Spent some quality time getting them out. That sucked, but block is ready to go to hot tank to start this build.
