block fill on a daily driver

I was wondering if anybody is running a filled block on their DD and tows with it? I was going to fill everything up to 2" below deck height. I threw a rod and dont want to have to pull my motor again because of a cracked block. Is it worth doing while its out or am I going to have to worry about it overheating? I already bought a girdle to help a little and im pushing close to 600 hp. And also if I do it should I just use hard-blok and how much of it do I need to buy? Any info will help. Thanks

Not trying to hi jack this but what does it mean to fill a block?

TS chip
Autometer gauges
E99 spider and intercooler
Mag-Hytec trans pan
6.0 trans cooler
Transgo tugger shift kit
AFE stage 2 intake
3 inch down pipe to 4 inch to 5 inch duals
35x13.5-20 atz radial
and some other miscellaneous dumb high school kid mods

Re: block fill on a daily driver

You fill the water jackets with a cement like material to help keep it from cracking or flexing where its thin between the water jackets and cylinder walls. Just basically helps keep the structural integrity of the block.

Re: block fill on a daily driver

Worth it? Probably.
I know of a few people that have filled DD builds.
Here is a good read on block filling:

Re: block fill on a daily driver

I just recently started researching this. So can it be done by the weekend mechanic ? Or does it need to be machined after?
