ok so heres the deal, im building my motor, but using the stock BLOCK not pistons and such, just the block alone. ive been told it can handle 500whp roughly before it breaks. has anyone gone higher than those numbers with block guards and such? what should i do to give her some strength...and dont tell me get a new block cause thats the easy way out. ive been gettin let down lately by this forum and it kinda sucks cause i used to surf here a lot. stupid answers and little info doesnt do much for me. and dont tell me to search cause searchin blows.
