Sorry, they must have dropped that option...a mate of mine has 9.2 sportsman block.
Here's the World stuff...they talk about 9.2's but don't show any but they have a 4.2" bore capacity.

The 9.2" deck windsor block is mainly for class racing applications.

The 9.5" deck windsor block is the one to get if you want to build a monster motor. The extra 0.3" deck height makes a massive difference in displacement potential

But if you're going to run cleveland heads on a 9.5" windsor block, the choice of reasonably priced intakes is limited.

But with your 500Hp target, it is well within the capabilities of a 351 cleveland. Then all other off the shelf cleveland parts will simply bolt on. Add a stroker kit and 500HP is even easier

Everyone has different ideas about what is the best, so weigh up all the comments above and on your other posts and make your own decision.

If it was me, I'd start with a financial budget for the engine and work back from that to determin how much you can spend on various parts. Bottom line is not to cut corners on critical components as a cheap & nasty (chinese crap) part can easily destroy a $10k engine, and to make sure you know what parts you need to buy from day 1 rather than finding out along the way.

If one was having trouble finding a 351c block, Am i correct in saying a good std 302c block is the same?

Yes it is!!!

You can build a tough 393 with AFR or CHI heads as cleveland blocks handle 600hp reliably, if block is good to start with...........

or go full windsor and get a 70's block with cleveland/windsor heads as 70's block can handle even more HP..........
