  2. Hey, those look GREAT :nice:

    Good to see more aftermarket Modular parts coming along.:banana:

    Buuuuuut thats a lot of scratch for just the block. :bang:
  3. finally !!!! :banana: :banana: ...we've been waiting for some serious cubic inches...but still a lot of dough for just a block..I'm pretty sure SHM is not the only one to work on that....I bet we will have some nice surprise from other builders like VTengines next year... :nice:
  4. $4,000+ for just a block:eek:
  5. it's a 6L !!!!!..forget the KB..go all NA...holy ****..cannot imagine the power out of such a longblock with agressive cams..P&P heads... :drool: :drool:
  6. anyone planning on purchasing one?
  7. maybe end of next year :)...I'm rethinking my KB/5.4L
  8. :stupid:

  9. you do realize that the price DOES NOT include the crank, pistons and rods, right? and putting 2V heads on something like that would be futile, even P&P'd. a forged setup with a turbo will get you more power for less $$. i paid $3150 for my complete forged shortblock, fully assembled and balanced with ceramic coated pistons.
  10. 6.0 with cobra parts? Could that be done?
  11. yes I do..just the block...
  12. oh man. I want one! :drool:
  13. me too :(
  14. yeah but 4k+ for just a block is pushing it when it comes to power. hell you might as well just turn the thing into an all out drag car if you're gonna drop that kind of coin.
  15. It looks like it has, or provisions for cross bolted mains. Am I looking at it right? :shrug:
  16. I'm thinking about it real hard! I have $4,200 right now, so I'm not too short on the 6.0L block. The crap part is I already my 5.4L pistons ($720+) and I'd have to shell out for the 3.70/3.75 custom big bore pistons.

    Anyone looking for some CP -17cc 2618 alloy dish blower/nitrous/turbo pistons with CP pins and double spiro locks? LOL
  17. can't say that i am :D
  18. What do you think these are primarily manufactured for? $ 4000.00 is a lot. Even in the pushrod engines, $ 2500.00 to $ 4000.00 is normal for something that may not even handle 2500 hp. :nice:
    This type of item as well as heads and intakes are not for the bolt on crowd. They do not market to that crowd either. :D
  19. Hmmm.........wonder how that would work with mach 1 heads and cams?? I could use my forged crank from my 4.6L, right? All I would need then would be forged pistons...hmmm........Why drop $4K+ into a blower when you could have a 6.0L DOHC motor for about the same?
  20. you're right, it's not for the bolt on crowd. but bolt on refers to relatively cheap hp parts, which means things like pullies, catbacks, midpipes, filters, plenums, throttle bodies, etc. things like blocks, heads, intakes, are more just simple bolt on performance. again i realize you have to pay to play, but still 4k+ for just a block seems trey expensive. if they were to sell that with a matching forged rotating assembly, then i could understand a high price tag. but for the block alone, that is asking just a little too much. oh well, to each their own i guess.
