THE FUTURE IS NOW!
With the introduction of the new 8B 5000™ series aluminum block, BRODIX® has taken the 5.0 bore spacing market to the next level. The 8B 5000 combines the size and durability of a 5.0 bore spacing block with the convenience and availability of its 4.840 bore spacing counterpart. These blocks are 100% CNC machined and employ the same technology that has made BRODIX® the undisputed leader in aluminum block development.
