351w SVO

ok ppls just a few Qs

i am after a 351w SVO sportman block, i have only found one retailer here in australia but they want 2500 for a bare block, IMO a little too much, does anyone know where to get them cheaper than that, or knows US dealers who send them internationally?

second 392 stroker kit from same ppl is $300 again a little expensive, is anyone aware if any australian dealers who sell them cheaper? or any US dealers to send internationally, preferabbly together with the block>

and last but not least how much is shipping it over?

cheers
mic

Re: 351w SVO

Find a 69 351 block in good shape,they are arguably as strong as Sportsman and cost less..If you want roller cam, aftermarket will have to be used...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: 351w SVO

Go the Dart block you will never(within reason) need to buy another block again. Even though I had a perfectly fine sonic tested virgin 351 block I went for the dart it can take a 4.185 overbore where a sportsman block can only go as much as a stock block which is 4.030 to 4.060 pushing it. The sportsman only has the benefit of a stronger mains area like the 69 blocks.the earlier the block the better most 351w blocks are stronger than 302w block with the 80s and above being the weakest. I ordered my dart block for 3600 from VPW cheaper by $400 to $1000 any where else in Aus, they cost $US 1995. Spend the money on the good stuff and you won't have to do it again or sress over having your block crank etc withstanding the horsepower.I was in the same boat as you but waited and saved up and got the good stuff, try VPW again for a stroker kit for $3000 you can get an all forged kit and a cast crank kit for alot less.
