They are pretty much the big 3 aftermarket blocks for windsors. My dream block would be a tall deck alluminium dart. But being a non factory alluminium block if you want to go drag racing your pretty much stuck with the real big boys in outlaw classes.

Read a good article in one of my mustang mags about them.
One of their new 330 odd ci Z-headed crate engines would be nice. They've even made cleveland/boss looking rocker covers for the windsor heads.

Do they make the world blocks in alluminium yet or just cast iron?

I have the Dart Iron Eagle..
Very little machining required when building engine..
As with most blocks with decent main caps.. The sump requires some re- modeling around # 4 mains cap...
