Those are chinese blocks and are junk I have one here and you can have itfor free but I can tell you this its totaly junk.

I did alot of testing on those junk blocks when they first hit the market a while back.

Here are some links to go over

This is the link of the final probing and testing of the chinese block and it took couple of months for PBM to admit there blocks were from china, Just an up date PBM no longer sells those blocks.

He has a race car so he probably can't afford a boat. No need for an anchor.

It's bad enough we have to deal with Chinese Crankshafts, Connecting Rods and rocker arms, but now blocks. We bought one to see what all the hipe was, they are crude.. Dart or world, don't trust anything but these blocks.

I have talk to Richard Maskins quite a few times I really don't think Dart is going to ever go to the chinese for castings.

Now World I wouldn't be surprised if they did as they seem to bee in trouble financialy and shut there engine building shop down last year because of failur rates were to high,

We we seeing alot of issues with world blocks and they would never take them back so we stopped using world blocks.
