If they hadn't unplugged KB's phone you could call and get some. Call Todd and maybe he knows how to get some.

My, not that special Indy block, from a prominent east coast engine builder was well over 7k by the time it was done. And that was 2 years ago. I'd be curious to know his " ready to assemble" price. The Indy block can't handle the power the KB block could.

The price of the block along with the dedicated heads studs comes to over 8K. Depending on finish work, especially if lifter bushings are utilized, I'd imagine around 9k.

It's at Best Machine because Best Machine has the contract to finish the blocks. That was posted here several weeks ago.

To control the amount of oil to the top end, push rod oiling to the rockers.

Not yet. Hopefully soon.

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


I will do that for sure. Oh and everything looks very good.

This will be the adapted injection manifolds. Shows how big they really are, 3.150" Big thanks to my father for the endless hours of machine work that can now be used. Will post better pics soon.

I'm going to try to throw something like 2,200-2,400 HP at a Indy block this year. My tuner say it should be OK if I don't do anything stupid with the tune......I'll let you know if it lives this fall
