GREATEST NEWS EVER FOR A 7.3!!!!

I've been waiting a while to post this information, but I've been working closely with a company to cast a new high performance 7.3 block.

These blocks are going to feature

- High grade casting material (same as used in NASCAR and Pro-stock blocks)
- Billet steel 8620 main caps with splayed bolts on 2-3-4
- main studs are H11
- proiority main oiling
- Larger oiling flow to hpop resevoir
- Larger main webbing around crankshaft and cam tunnel area
- siamese bore cylinders
- siamese bore water jacketing
- extra thick deck surface
- significantly thicker cylinder walls
- thicker pan rails
- screw in freeze plugs

We are working out details right now as far as price but it looks like it is going to be around $4000-4500, obviously the more we have ordered and made the less they will cost, we could get the cost as low as $3000

Let me know what you think!!!

That's $4000-4500 just for the raw casting from the foundry?

Have you or has anyone sat down to figure what all the jigs, fixtures, tooling, and machining would cost on top of that?

Absolutely, 2000+ ft/lbs of torque.

Also, these units should be about 100-130lbs heavier than the stock counterparts.

No thats $4000-4500 for a finished part to your door, actually it will most likely be undersized on the bore.
