    If we opted for the all ford block what is a realistic time table to receive it?

    Congrats Jr. VP :) 35 years and going strong. I remember buying my first set of KB headers from your Dad (still running them) when he was still working out of the garage on Greenway!

    This is a great opportunity to step up your Buick race program ! In both big power potential and reliability!
    If you've ever had the urge to go to the alum block don't miss this deal. back in 2012 when we started working on NBF again we were going to put an iron block in it but instead put the Tomahawk in and never looked back. We had the Ford main std cam version and took the rotating assembly out of the skyhawk turned the main down to 3 " and put that in the car with about 11;1 compression. Mitch learned to drive the car with that combo which was virtually trouble free. fast forward to 2015 after raising the compression and some additional port/intake work from Chris
    we had the car running regularly into the 8's at 151 mph problem free. in all the time i ran the hawk i never had a block girdled plated filled or whatever last more than 2 seasons and i don't have any urge to build another one like that. I've Known Mike for a long time and we've talked about this block for just about as long . In BG in 2015 I thanked Mike for making the block happen because i know it took a large personnel commitment to get it off the ground in the first place. I am also convinced that the block allowed Mitch and I to enjoy racing NBF over the last few years with confidence . As a matter of fact the same block/crank combo is getting updated again chasing that elusive N/A 4 digit power level and the block is not our concern.

    so if i bought the standard block
    all other standard parts would work

    other than the aforementioned oil pan and pick up tube

    just how much power is capable to be made without going nuts of course

    Hey Michael, I don't suppose you're working on the website? I'd like the option of placing online orders. Just the other day I needed to order a oil pickup tube gasket...had to wait until the next day to make the phone call to have it sent to me. Tim does a great job on the phone and is always a pleasure to talk to...just saying it might be more convenient to your customers to have this option.

    We will place an order at the end of the year and it would be at least 6-8 weeks until we would receive the blocks.

    Turn around time on a set of heads is a few days.

    Correct. Oil pan and pickup tube are different, everything else will bolt up.
