Similar dough to a dart srp block here too.

Clevo's have been a bread and butter performance engine here in Aus for a long time. lots of very fast ones in Australia from tuff tuff streeters to track weapons. We never have to go far to get the good oil on a proven tested comboSmile[/b]

MME racing also has the Titus aluminum block and then there is the infamous Tod Buttermore block, which may or may not be available.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Looks like the Titus blocks are $3750 for cast iron, and $4750 for the aluminum version. Those who want mechanical fuel pumps would have to specify, otherwise they're cast without mechanical fuel pump set-ups.

I wonder what the Arrow set-up would run. The Fabre website is kinda jacked-up, so there's not a lot of information to be had (from what I can see).

Well it sounds like there are at least 3 if not 4 aftermarket true cleveland blocks now being either produced or on the verge of production. That bodes well for the Cleveland sticking around for some years to come. Hopefully, there is sufficient demand and there will be a bit of competition which should bring the costs down.
