Did they give you a quote? $$$$
So...They told me mid $4000s.
most people don't realize the penalty weight is when racing, I know in one class/ naturally aspirated and running a blower was 50lbs added to the car to level the field. doesn't seem like much but obviously is!That's one thing I have never understood. If you're into a block for 4k, why wouldn't you spend the extra coin for an aluminum block? 100+ lbs off the front of the car and repairable to boot.
I was told by a real SUPER STOCK RACER that I would make more power with iron and better longevity.
Bough my mega block in 07 or 08 for $2500 for new build. Started with a 4.235 bore,,,,now up to 4.380 making over 1100 HP in a street driven car.
Here I drove from Long Island into Brooklyn for the Rumblers car show.
Agreed, that why I went with KB. Its about 140lbs for me. Took 15 months to arrive but it finally did. Still sitting at the dealers shop. He hasn't had time to de-crate it and check for any issues.It's about 190lbs. Off the nose of the car. It's a no brainers for me.
