if you have to save for this block your not in the position to afford the rest of the parts that make it worthwhile to run one of these :wink:

We have been getting a ton of calls on these blocks. First let me start with saying we have been building these motors for over 15 years. Don't think that for 1 second because we use them you will make over 1000hp, there are so many other surrounding factors that come into play as well.


A Fully Assembled Race Block by our team with sleeves and Import DPS Signature parts will cost $7500. We have dual cam cores that we can use.

i have some pretty good parts from my 600whp build.. the block was just not up to the task.

do you guys just sell the block?
or a bottom end? i could send in my rods and crank you could supply new psitons..

im not looking for 1000whp... just some thing that will be happy at 750-800

its a filled block. it just doesn't block the coolant passages.

a lot of drag racers do that. one for such a short time the motor is running you don't need coolant running through the block. two it makes it less prone to cracking and breaking under high hp and high boost. for a street car i would never do it.

but you can get away with a half fill on a street car. it helps
