Eleven years on this Arias New Century block.
Not a racer but I have put hundreds of hours on it and many hundreds of WOT runs at the 1800 hp level.



IMO a Y block is all around a stronger design.

i got a big m now but the nose is just so damn heavy. i can get it profiled and lose 32lbs but rather lose 140lbs.

is anyone a dealer to help out on the cost of any of these blocks?

New century or Rodeck either way you can't go wrong. Just missed a 10.2 Rodeck last week for 1500 bucks. 2 year old block. Friend in Socal has one in his alky injected supercomp dragster. Block was made in 1996. Only on it's 3rd set of sleeves.
