    Sorry, $5500 is cost prohibitive for non racers.
    The discontinued MP/SB blocks and Ritters blocks are/were cost prohibitive for non racers.
    If I was racing on a regular, for the money, heads up style or very serious in the brackets, not a problem.
    But standing next to a F or C brand, still, it’s out stripping my wallet. Add the insane fee for stepping up for $300 48* blank cam core only to be sent out for grinding, cost prohibitive.

    I can only go as fast as my wallet says I can.

        I know for a fact that a stock 360 block can be built to go 9.60's and hold up to bracket type NA builds that are raced weekly at 2860 pounds. This is with stock main caps and no concrete. How much faster can they go??? I hope to find out as I believe 9.30's-9.40's is reachable. So once again how many of us need better blocks. If its priced right and machined right I would like one BUT they better push this program and get it going because some of us guys are getting OLD.
