Re: Windfall $ = Aluminum SBC block?
Ahhh, the point of this build is to be a bit Old School, so LS is out of the question.
I already have Eagle crank and rods, $1K custom forged pistons, rebuilt Brownfield heads, new cam & lifters, 4x44 IDF Webers, aluminum flywheel, etc.
So it's going to be a 333" SBC even if I have to use the iron block I already have.
Alloy block might be a bit crazy for a street car but I'm only going to get to do this sort of build once.
NOT drag racing, more like a road-racer.
Want to lower weight for better handling and acceleration with the tiny little engine.
At these gas prices I want it 100+ octane, leaded, and my windshield washed!
