Whats the deck height on these blocks ? because they only just fit under hood now !

If they fit, it would definatelty be a great cube increase over the 347

And how much would a lot of money be. 10k is not a lot of money. 15k+ would be a lot of money for a crate motor.

Must be fitted up with some top quality s**t and be pumping out at least 550hp. Do they have any cheaper and smaller capacity crate motors featuring the manowar block.

Theres a GM based crate motor called the hypatec which is based on a dart block and it costs 25k. But its built locally. The s**t you see for sale in the US is unbelievably cheap compared to what we got here.

For $ 17700 you get a 455hp crate motor, but must be a torque monster
