    Go with the Aviator motor, leave the longblock alone, just do boltons and the thing should be a beast.

      iron blocks have been to 2500. so have teksids. people want an arm and a leg for teksids. its a good block but certainly not worth what people want for them.

        Seems like it to me, saves you what 100lbs or so.

          its not 100 lbs its less. and if you are worried about the weight/hp a wap block will work just fine as will an alluminator. if your looking to make 2000+ hp having an extra 60 lbs over the nose isnt gonna kill you. it might even help

            Teskid weights about 85 lbs, WAP aluminum block is about 80 lbs and the Romeo iron block is about 160-165 lbs.

              80-85lbs off your nose is no joke!

                The only reason i was considering this is b/c or how cheap i could get the motor for.

                  how cheap? dont forget you'll need a t-45, flywheel, clutch and possibly a new computer.

                        T5 can work on a mod motor. You need a specific bellhousing for it though. I forget who makes it.

                            How much is that though?

                              No idea, what does a steel bellhousing SFI approved go for now? Thats probably a good figure to start with.

                                probably at least 200 right?

                                here's a better idea Holland's junkyard does all you can carry for 75bucks twice a year. Just go grab a T-45 then.
