What should I tell them to do? From my understanding, I need to have the block hot tanked, deck squared, cylinders bored .030" over, get new cam bearings installed, and what else? How much do you think all that will cost? Also, do you think this
is an okay choice for someone that wants to keep this cheap? Or is it junk?
I would really think about using this 2 bolt for a stroker! it is not the best choice unless you just want to say you have a stroker
look a little more and find a four bolt
Otherwise you are putting a lot of money into a block that cant take the use. find a good 1010 block
