Another allotment of 426 Hemi and 440 wedge aluminum bare blocks has begun.

All final machine processes have been completed and stand ready to finish the new engine blocks as they arrive from the foundry.

Those wanting to lock in the block of choice and see them shipped immediately as they are completed can get on our list with a small deposit.

After those on the list have been satisfied, the remainder of the blocks will be available to others.

Estimated time for completion has been told as approx. 120 days.

Give us a call and we will get you on the list.

Latest info, the first 440 and 426 aluminum blocks are beginning to be poured. They then go to X-ray to see if there are any faults. If they are found correct, the building process begins and all on the list will be taken care of first.

We have all been waiting a long time for these. The manufacture has had their share of issues trying to get them started. I was told possibly 60 days out.

For our big block 426 Hemi and 440 wedge guys, it won't be much longer. The test blocks all passed X-ray and are fabulous.

They are now released and being poured. This is a picture of one of the first coming out. Great work !

Quality is excellent and the process is purposely being done slowly for higher quality.

To our people on the list, it won't be much longer and appreciate your patience. You will be the first to grab one.
