Just curious what kind of #'s anybody has put on the board running a stock cast iron block. Regardless of the bore/stroke or NA/boosted/NO2

I've just been a little worried my stock block won't hold up but I think I'm good for a while. I just need to stop listening to the haters that's all.

Look up Erica Ortiz, I think she ran 6.60s for a while.
The engine run by Erica Ortiz was a 4-bolt SCJ block, was filled solid, used a forged crankshaft, used D0OE-R SCJ heads, and was tuned by one of the most respected names in Ford racing history.

Offset stroke iron stock crank

managed low 7,s at 180 +
The engine run by Vandy was a 2-bolt with OEM main bolts and OEM head bolts, was unfilled, used OEM passenger car heads, and used an OEM cast crankshaft. The car ran low 7's regularly. When the engine was set up to make any additional power it would routinely destroy drive train parts behind it, usually the TH400. It is believed that if the TH400 were replaced with a Lenco that this 2-bolt block "cast everything" engine might have made it into the 6's.

Was that on Fuel or Alcohol?

6.88 with an offset ground cast crank Paul....

I was running a Stock Ford 4 bolt 460 block filled with concrete. We ran [email protected] 207mph with a cast crank in the car. After the 6.88, we switched to a little better steel crank, and ran 6.69 @ 207mph with it, still in the stock block. Any questions regarding combination can be directed to Mr. Al Moody in Mableton, GA. He is the engine guru behind my car, John Gullett's small block and big block operation, and several others.
For what its worth, when I took out the Cast crank, the engine looked perfect. But I realize that I was playing with a grenade with the pin-pulled. So, I'm switching to an aftermarket aluminum block this year and a good rotating assembly and I'm headed out to chase down my PRO MOD dreams. Mr. Moody will be running the old motor on the dyno with all my parts next week, and I'll have some concrete engine dyno #'s for you, and how it held up. Better it go on the engine dyno than at the 1000 ft. mark at 200mph.

One thing to consider... an engine diaper and a belly pan... that way if it goes, you'll minimize the experience of skating on oil/water/whatever other fluid decides to get up under the tires.
My car went 6.69 @ 207mph with a stock block filled with block filler. Probably could've gone more, but I opted to switch to a better engine program this year and bypass the "trial by error" factor. I don't want to know what the breaking point is.
Hey there!

Well, I just ran 6.88 @ 205 with a scat cast steel crank and a stock filled block. I have aluminum rods in the motor. We figured it made approx. 1700 hp on that pass.

Hope that helps!

With stock block they did 1731 hp with 7300 rpm, not to mention with stock crank and with boxed stock connection rods...
Now would you box the stock rods and give the engine +7000 rpm and 40 psi of boost??? Engine was made for modified minipuller, at now a days the guy is running a460 block with some serious internals instead of stock OEM. Geez, I would say.

That engine used aftermarket H-beam connecting rods, not modified OEM stock rods.



The engine consisted of a D9TE standard-webbed truck block with CAT 4-bolt main cap conversion, water jackets filled solid, o-ringed deck, head studs, D2VE open chamber heads with CJ-sized valves, pedestal rocker arm valve train, 4U cast 429 crankshaft, L2366 429 pistons, modified OEM oil pan, high volume oil pump, and H-beam rods.

It's a great accomplishment which very much underscores the capabilities of the OEM parts when prepped well, tuned well, and utilized in the specific applications where this type of power handling is indeed possible.
