I now have 3 motors with steel Brodix blocks...no issues and 2 of them are production #s 1 and 2 sold to Wilson Race Engines. 1 has a blower on it and goes 4.30 at 161, another goes 4.50s in the 150s and the other goes 4.60s at upper 140s.
Where do you get informed they are not on par with a competitive product? Do you use any steel Brodix blocks?
Originally posted by TORQIN: I have years of use with over 700 runs or more on 2 of them to prove them factually wrong...they probably get better prices from Dart and want to sell that instead would be my guess.
Truth and facts prevail here IMO. Not a fan of Dart...but certainly can't say they are below par in comparisonto other Block manufacturers.
Chris, does your Brodix blocks have the nodular iron main caps or did Spanky upgrade them? I'm glad to hear you have had good success with them as have put so many runs on them, that's good to hear..

That was my experience. The clearances delivered was perfect to .0001”. Ring seal best I’ve seen in 25 years of building. Glad to hear that’s still the case. Send them a sample lifter and piston. Tell them what you want for clearance and wait for perfection
