    Can you give me a price for your aluminum SB Chevy with the 4.125 Bore with either the 4 inch stroke or possibly the 4.125 stroke. This engine will be in a street and strip 1997 Camaro Convertible and will not require any special machine work. I would prefer that the block has the fuel pump pad as well as all other standard Chevy mounting points..

    • Brodix says:

      Ed,

      We do not currently make an aluminum block that has all standard mounting point (no oil filter boss, no clutch pivot point) . However you can get a block that will handle the 4.15 bore and stroke of 4.125 with steel rods.

      Thanks!
