Dear God THANK YOU!!!!! I dont know why everyone keeps on with this cracked 704 casing stuff. If you cracked a sleeve and make less then 550-600whp, you had to much cylinder pressure or knocked like crazy.

I have tuned plenty and run a 704 block in my own 10second 130+mph daily driver. 36psi, no cracked sleeves... although I dont think running 36psi on a stock unbraced liner is a good thing.
Ditto, been running 704's for a long time up to 10.0 in the 1/4. Broke a lot of other stuff but never even had a hairline crack in any cylinders.
