Since I been hearing mixed things with about power levels. Has anyone had any experience with Gen III hemi block strength? They’re cross-bolted like the Gen II hemis and they seem to be pretty beefy. I really would rather keep it old school but it may be a temporary thing until I can afford an aftermarket block.
Thanks for all the extremely useful information so far!
Here's your Gen III stock bottom end with one turbo:
This Volare isn't mine. It's owned by Paul Baker out of Ohio. It is a stock gen 3 block.I have no experience with 360 block. The weakness of the 400 and 440 is the main web area, shows up in the 750 and above HP range/ couple hundred passes. 230 block may last a little longer.
Did you replace your Volare Gen III hemi crank/rods/ pistons? Is it turbocharged, and how much boost?
