I know Bill Lutz has beat the piss out of a New Century block for years.Lots of boost in a heavy car and I think he went high 6.60's and 220 plus.If I was looking at a new 4.84 bore spacing block it would be NC.

From what I've heard the Brodix is a good piece also.

Also look at CN Blocks. http://cnblocks.com/
Lots of top racers use them and never had any issues with them.

serious blown alcohol demands cross bolted mains. The new century is based on a KB/Olds alky engine. It's heavier but water blocks have made over 3000 hp with screw blowers.

These brodix blocks that are breaking how old are they wondering if they are older models.

i have had 3 brodix blocks all over 3000 horsepower. One of which has been running 6 seconds for over 300 passes and another that has been low 4s in the 1/8 and mid sixes in 1/4 for well over 100 passes with no issues. It doesnt matter what block you have, if you are not on your tuneups you will tear it up. i have a dozen of these blocks in customers cars with hundreds of runs and no problems Knock on wood
