The quality of Mexican block is not as good as the ones I bought out of the Tanawanda plant in NY. I am talking about machine work like cylinder bore placement, lifter bore placement and cam tunnel placement and deck heights ETC.

I CNC machine my blocks and every block that goes through my machine goes through a probing cycle to check for cylinder bore placement, bore size, and deck heights before I start which also tells me the quality of the work the was done by the manufacturer.

I have seen cam tunnels off .016 and cylinders off .035 from intake to exhaust and from front to rear never seems that bad.

I have seen crates in circle track racing 355 horse under 10:01 break a cylinder wall and those are 355 horse engine
