Block failures are quite low compared to the rest of the engine parts. I wouldnt dwell on a block either.If you want a 600 hp small block then buy all the parts needed for 600 hp,dont limit yourself because you have 1 part you want to reuse. What I would do is first,decide what I want/need.Then I would make sure I have a proper home for the drive train.Then I would put in new complete drivetrain.example: when I built my engine,I bought a new tko 5 speed,new sfi approved flywheel,new clutch and scattershield,new posi carrier and gear set,new big block 1/2 shafts and improved u-joints.It took over a week to install everything. I still had to custom order the headers for the application and get an exhaust system built.Car was down for close to a month
