This just might be what Moparts is supposed to be. I am a big block guy bt I find the ritter idea to be very interesting as well. Lots of luck and the more detail the better!

This one is a tall deck (9.6") 48 deg. you can get a short deck and what ever lifter angle.

I have a set of W9's on my other R3 block (468 cid) with 59 deg lifter angle. That set of heads is a set of Chapman done heads and they are to small for that motor it gives up at 6800 but it pulls hard in the mid range.
This one is going to get the W9RP that Curtis Boggs from RFD did.

Yes I think the blocks are for sale, all I did was E-mail him. I know last time I spoke with him he said that the foundry was having problems casting the steel blocks because of core shift, but the aluminum blocks they weren't having problems with. I was told that the other aluminum block that is running is the prototype block.

Isnt that the truth... my first set had so much crap
in the alum that it was useless to even try... when
I got my replacement set from mopar they said I could
keep them... I tried to weld on them..what a joke....
the set I have now is pretty porous but seal.. with
some work

Yes you can buy bloks from Ritter he has them available. I am not a small block guy but have head from a very well known shop they need "some work" when you get them Bt I also know they believe everything needs some work as delivered anyway smile

called Kevin at Hughes Engines yesterday about doing a ritter block and he said they have done 4 engines to date and have had no problems. He said they will support 1400 hp easily. just need to make clear what you want done from Ritter before they send the block to Hughes.
