Have the new blocks hit the market yet? Curios to see some pics of machined blocks and comments.
I know of only 2 that have sold, I have seen one of them on the dyno making some nice early tune numbers, definately showing good potential. The other is getting some out of the ordinary machine work done and should be a nice peice when done. Jim Burek has an aluminum block, not sure how that is coming along. It would be nice if this would progress a bit quicker, small market big project, hope it all turns out well in the end. Now lets all be decent here and keep the flames to a minimum. I am not involved in this project myself just hoping for the best for everyone that is.
New block whats that o No: I heard one was seen at area 51 ...
Does anybody have pics they would like to share.
From the 2005 GS Nats
You know.....I still do not understand why the mains are only set-up with standard 4-bolt instead of the much stronger splayed 4-bolt caps...at the VERY least the center 3 should be!?!?! Can anyone comment on why Dick ommited (or overlooked) this improvement?o No:
BTW...I can't wait to see TA's "TOMAHAWK" block with 6-bolt caps!:TU: Hopefully my health continues to improve (as it definately has been!) and I can manage to save a few coins here and there for this block.
I'm looking forward to the TA block and i will be purchasing one when they are ready to go. ou: What DB has done is wrong on so many levels...
Im not sure, but sometimes when Im reading a post I get the feeling that something is happening, something I cant quite put my finger on. Maybe someday I will figure it out. Its almost like Im being watched! (but not quite)
Whats this TOMAHAWK thing you are talking about?

Looks like I need to start saving my pennies again. :Brow:

Thank you Larry and Bobb!! Any and all information without all the complaining, and flaming is very much needed and appreciated! The side-liners, like myself, can't get enough information on this block without wading through a mud hole of anti-information associated with most of the other posts on this subject. Any more information is greatly appreciated and needed, as far as a future block buyer like myself is concerned. Also, thanks to all the guys for spending the money to pave the way for the procrastinators like me. :beer
