So my 01 hasn't had even a nibble since I listed it for sale, and my itch for a project has me thinking about building a new motor. Basically I was looking to sell it because taking this car to the next level will be a long and expensive project and I wasn't sure if I wanted to stick with the same car. Oh well, there are worse situations than having to play with my car. So onto the discussion. I want to build an aluminum block to take some weight off the nose since the TT Eaton swap added a nice chunk of weight. I know the common story is that Teksid blocks are awesome, and WAP blocks are junk. Yes Teksid blocks are stronger, but are the WAP blocks really that bad? I have searched and all the information I have found is on forums where a guy has a friend who knew a guy who saw a WAP block fail at 200 RWHP. I have done google searches looking for pictures, and the only cracked WAP block out there is one where a guy over torqued some ARP head studs. There is also the excerpt from the Sean Hyland book where he says he prefers the Teksid for high HP builds and mentions HP numbers with no other validating information. So, does anybody have any first hand experience with WAP block failure?
