We have shared the aluminum Cleveland blocks we are in the process of manufacturing. This aluminum is the strongest alloy of any cast automotive block. Now here are a couple pictures of the first CGI Cleveland block.
What is CGI...Compacted Graphite Iron.
How does it compare?
Typical cast iron block is Grade 30 (30,000)
Best CI block is grade 40 (40,000)
CGI is 75,000
We can handle a bore size of up to 4.230-4.250"

No grout needed!!! :)

Stay tuned....

Man Tmeyer Inc is really developing some awesome products!!  This guy is really dedicated to 335 engines, and that's one of the biggest reasons I want to support him when I do my build.

Yes, Tim Meyer is really dedicated to the 351c. When I ca afford it, I'll get an aluminum block from him as well.

It's not just the 351C but the entire 335 series.  He's also really put the Ford 400 back on the map with his self designed exclusive pistons that make the 400 a viable build choice.  He's build a ton of 400's from 351M and 400 blocks and also has 434 stroker kits.  He has a ton of knowledge on cam selection, oil system mods, and other aspects of these engines. Now his Trackboss line is just the ultimate for the Cleveland enthusiast who wants to bring this engine to new levels of performance.

If mine didn't have a 4 bolt main 351C in it I'd have seriously considered building a 400 for it.
