e-85 will work better with more compression. on some d-1 blocks theres not enough material for four bolt main caps. keep the main girdle. it also the main caps from walking. 700 hp should be no problem.
I'll have to disagree with you on the cap walk. Without full contact across the full width of the bottom of the cap all the generic girdles do is act as a washer under the bolt head. As I said, if you don't finish the machine work that's needed to turn it into an actual functioning girdle, it's a waste of money.
In all actuality nothing more than the factory 2 bolt main caps are needed with a targeted horsepower level of 700 horse. A factory 2 bolt bottom end and a factory cast crank will handle well into the 4 digit horsepower range.
Cap walk occurs when bad tunes are encountered. With a bad tune no amount of cap stabilization will hold the cap in place, it WILL walk.
