I'd say the best answer for the OP is if all he has is a thin web block, cannot find a D0VE-A block and does not want to spring for an aftermarket block then that thin web block is the obvious answer...

Where you draw the line depends on your comfort level. I think they can handle a lot more than 600 hp, I'd say RPM and tune be a lot more important than a HP number. As I see it they are prone to...
