Block prep is the foundation for any good engine build, with machining quality directly relating to the performance and reliability. Our block was machined on Speed-O-Motive's Rottler F-65 automated CNC, which bored the cylinders, square-decked the block, and corrected the main bores, as well as performed the crankcase clearancing for the stroker crank to come. After machining, the block was cleaned and painted and the cam bearings installed.
