Looks like he used a pretty thick material for the deck. I'd be curious what material he used for the deck, in regards to thermal expansion.

Looks good. I'd make sure coolant ports match up with head and gasket though.

I am just getting done building a short block with some of their machine work. I bought from them a couple months back and have measurements that I went thru and triple checked as with any build i ran into some issues that were minor on my end but with these guys so far everything is looking good, They did tell me if I had any problems I can send it back for them to take care of things as so far I***8217;m not seeing anything as of now, I do need to check the gasket line up before final assembling sometime this week.. They do use torque plates and seamed to left a little more room for expansion with my pistons but not to much as they seam to be leaving space for high horse power applications without over doing it. As for the mains came within spec. Cylinder walls matched with piston. This is my test block before I start building and selling basically their machine work since dedicating a lot of my spare time to this, so I will let you all know how it holds up & if anyone***8217;s interested but needs someone in the southwest to put this together for them. Just gapped the rings today. And looking to build some cylinder heads to drop it in something light. If anyone is interested dm me and I can send you my build sheet specs of what I got. I***8217;m excited to see the results. I will check back in hopefully a month or two from now. I do want machined cylinder heads so I want to chat with them about some porting work on that end. other wise I***8217;ll post some photos/dyno & results here when the time comes.

Thanks, I***8217;m glad I happen to stumble across this thread and give some insight. I wasn***8217;t expecting to come across this.

Default Closed Deck/SemiClosed Deck--Great Reputation & price

I found some people that have an excellent reputation for ClosedDeck, SemiClosed Deck Blocks, and offer excellent guarantee. Their price is reasonable, and they are great people with years of experience (30+ years). Call Outfrontmotorsports.com at 714-994-5222 and ask for Jeremy Hunt. He is super nice/knowledgable to deal with.
Just a FYI

lol right. Thought the same just didn't want to be a dick about it. Also IAG, and Dave at Rallispec does great work. I went with Rallispec since he also rebuilt my tranny and changed out my gear ratio to longer gears. Best decision i ever made.

Quick update to this thread, i went with them, very friendply bunch. Sent my case halves in for a 100mm hone with .0035 PTW clearance and closed deck, came back looking beautiful and shiny, washed out the machining chips and assembled it, got the heads on and in the car, started up and sounds good on idle. No funny noises and working great! Will continue to update when motor is broken in

Did you happen to measure the cylinders for PWC, roundness and taper?

Please understand I'm not being sneaky so I can go "A-HA! You're a big dummy!" 1) that would be rather dickish of me and 2) I am genuinely curious as to how they did.

I bought my closed deck short block used off facebook and been looking to find out where it was done, looks like it was done there from the water passage patterns, here's a pic

Was bored over to 100mm so we'll see how it will handle power on built internals

I bought the block for $600, seemed to have a small crack but my mechanic says it feels fine so we're continuing with this block, if anything I have my OG block waiting to get reinforced as well.

Car is not together yet but will keep you guys updated on how it works for me

I sent them the pistons and case halves and they did it all, although they must've used only one piston to measure all cylinders with because when I sent the pistons they had all the rings on them and only one came back without rings so that's what I'm assuming they used, when I measured out the cylinders and pistons they all came back within .0002

I don't think yours was done at emerald coast, it didn't look anything like mine. The teardrop coolant passages are different from me. Mine were just circular

Look at the pics from awdanthony the one block looks exactly like mine, same space between the small passages. I sent them a message on Insta. I might actually be wrong they said it was done in Melbourne I didn't realize Milton is in panhandle

His doesn't look like yours... its not even his, the picture he posted to start is a screenshot from their Facebook. The coolant openings for where the headbolts go are totally different shapes than the picture you posted. They're not the same at all, I think you've got the wrong shop
