    I don't believe they are in business anymore, so support isn't there.

    A forged block is a much better in the long run, from reliability and support standpoints.

    It might be a good deal in the beginning, but not in the long run.

    Your results may vary! LOL!

    KB is back in a big way. Improved oiling, stronger cylinder walls, about zero core shift and more dense castings. Ken Black is no longer involved which is good. They have a new facility. They have honored all of Ken Blacks Backorders. They have Just caught up on old orders and are getting new casting Dec-18-18 and are now trying to build some inventory. The New owner Darren Beal is a stand up guy from Australia. He has a partner also Tim Banning from Canada. CJ

    The blocks will handle 6500 hp and 4500 ft lbs of torque without deflection for sure.

    I assume the original question was regarding used blocks, not new ones.
