I guess that is the way to handle the power with that combo. I recall a Mercruiser 4 banger Comp car several years ago with the stock die cast Mercruiser block and it was the weak link even with a lot of reinforcement.

Tom, I think you are thinking of the white roadster that ran K/A some years ago, and was raced by a guy from Saskatchewan Canada, named David Fromm (sp?). I believe that is the same car that Clint Neff still runs in K/AA.

I think that Michael Hanrraty used to run a Mercruiser 248 cu.in. 4 cylinders block a few years ago on his altered.
If my memory is right he is now using a different block today. Something like a CN block (half DRCE 2) or Rodeck ???But I'm really not 100% sure.

I believe some of the K/A(A) cars are using a billet block made by Weston Machine that accepts a Pro Stock head. I'm not sure if there is just a GM version or one that accepts a Ford or Mopar head as well.
