Four bolt main SBC?

Post by Walline » Wed Aug 31, 2005 1:57 pm

I am sure this has been asked more then a few times, but I searched and could not find it. I am going to build a combo, around a procharger D2R. Was planning on doing a BBC, but I really don't want to rebuy, all the SBC parts I could run. My delima is, If I have to spend $2000.00 on an aftermarket block, I think I will switch to BBC. But if I can get away with using a factory, 4 bolt 350 block, I would stay SBC. I do not think I want to spend the money on a factory block to splay it!
(I would go aftermarket). So, will a four bolt 350, with good studs, hold up to say 900 plus HP. The car would only go to the track a few times a year. Very little use. To my amazment, quite a number of people, have told me it would be fine, but I am unsure. Just looking for people who have done it! THANKS!!

We do a lot of spalyed cap 010 blocks for engine builders and machine shops all over the country and with 4 billet caps and and a strap on the rear main we only rate these at around 600 horse and before we install main caps we sonic test the cylinders before we start anything.

Here is a pic of a block we rate at under 600 horse.
