I would love to hear more about putting a 94mm wheel in a 108mm housing.

Good luck making 1,000 HP the odds are heavily stacked against you, also FYI no one cares unless it's Wheel Horse Power.

The blocks have done very well for us. I'm not sure why drew had said anything about 1000hp. It's not something that we're aiming for. We were looking to offer a block to handle more boost without having to sleeve and so far we've done several at 35-40psi and they've been awesome.

Not sure what in the world 94mm in 108mm comment was referencing either....

Is it possible to sleeve the block then put your block support product after sleeving?

Sorry dont post here much but have a couple questions.
Yes you have supported the top of the each cylinder so now this will help with them flexing independent of each other. But everything under the supports can still expand under high pressure and cause stress in the metal. Which in turn even if you could support the whole length of the cylinder and have zero room for the walls to expand any direction you face another problem. Under the high cylinder pressure it puts alot of force on the aluminium walls, after awhile this should cause the metal to crystallize and become very brittle and then cause the cracks. Have you guys figured out the hp point where having reduced cylinder flex with the guard is helpful in having long engine life, but before the point where you are at risk of cracking the walls? As others have stated its not a matter of support with preventing cracking the walls, its the need for stronger material to take the pressure.

Second question: I see your milling profiles on the top of the deck to making openings for the support. How well are you holding tolerance on these holes going around with an endmill. Are your probing every block to check for consistency? Or each block has supports just to fit that one? What is the interference fit on the pieces being pressed in? I just ask because I see no other way you are hold them in besides the press fit. I just wonder if there is any risk of the supports moving after time?

Waisting your time man. 50 psi on a 40\42R is no problem for this beast.

I used to have an S&R stage 2.5 Block but sold it for a huge loss when S&R wouldn't provide any of the specs on my built, balanced and blue printed shortblock....

I couldn't trust them....I did find someone I CAN trust that provides PROOF of their build in ASF Machine....I have a thread in this section as well....

I just got my car back from S&R today after their stage 2+ block treatment. Well update if i run into any issues. My block wasn't done the same as others though. They made a few revisions.

I'm also interested in how the S&R block holds up, I've seen videos of cars with their blocks in, but I found nobody to vogue for their blocks or give their opinion on them.
