I also see that since this is a special dry solid block, that screw in freeze plugs are not needed, unless those small tapped holes are the plugs themselves.
Glad that you received your special block Wedgefed and that it is in the hands of Chuck and Pete.

Not yet. Hopefully soon.

You should start a thread to document your engine build and dragster.

Tapped holes are the oil gallery

iagree

Over $7000 and two years, not a good deal at all.

Maybe I am missing something here, as I see some of this as a negative. Since the cost of these is much more than Indy, why won't Indy raise their price $500-1000, and still be competitive with this block?

That isn't helping some........

Maybe because Indy realizes for that price you could get a custom machined billet BAE block.

Indy now charges 5500 for the base engine block PLUS any options on top of that.KB has more standard features. Anybody caring can send me an email and I will send you more info on both blocks. moparts@ptmc.net

So, they have already raised the price?

Is this a case where competition went in the wrong direction?

Indy and KB are really the only viable sources for almost ANY aftermarket BB/Hemi blocks at the moment. Yes others are trying but when you are the only game in town you can name your price so to speak. The block in this thread also had some "extra" stuff that is not normal and was extra cost as well. It also might just be the most expensive BB Mopar block ever made if the truth were ever told. Unique situation to be very sure.
Glad the owner will finally, soon be united with his new block.

.....and not to mention that it is in the hands of some folk that will burn, cut and hone away all of its quirks to make it a mean motha.
It seems the effort at KB has a pulse. It will just be a long recovery.
