Does it make a difference in the year? I thought I heard that the older blocks could handle more than the newer ones. I only ask because he said fuel injected so I'm assuming it is relatively new (late 80's at least).. that could also just be me remembering my chevy days of the 4 bolt to 2 bolt switch in 86, I think it was.

yeah, i've been told the older ones have a higher nickel content, therefore they're stronger. that's why i specifically asked about the newer fuel injected ones. what about the older blocks? how much can they hold?

darrell, was your 408 or 418 (i don't remember what it was) a stock block or aftermarket?

I'm not real sure. I haven't used a newer block myself but a friend of mine has made 840 rear wheel horsepower with an F1R and 22 pounds of boost in his Lightning with a production 93 block. I think cap walk is more of an issue in the newer blocks.

Yall should know by know, nothing made "strong" anymore besides some of the aluminum blocks I've seen. You have to eithier have $50,000 to drop on the spot or you must have A+++++++ credit to even be able to finance for a car that's "strong". The fact that I now know a 351 can hold 700hp, I beleive I will get a 351w and start a build. Piss on the big block. I hope I can compete with the new 09 vettes coming out with there stock 650hp rating
