If a basic sub-600hp small-block is your goal, it's tough to beat the value of Dart's new SHP block. Available in both 4.000- and 4.125-inch bore configurations, it is good for 434 ci, and all you need to do is hone it before it's ready for assembly. It's built from a rugged iron alloy and comes with four-bolt mains. For $1,500, it sure beats trying to scrounge up a junkyard 400 block.
