    My understanding is Romeo is an assembly plant. Are the old 4.6 iron blocks casted out of Cleveland?

    Also, is there any issue with the blocks being only 4-bolt main compared to the Alumium blocks being 6

    Issues how? If staying stock, no. If you want to make big HP numbers, you will want a teksid, aviator or frpp block

    All the 4.6 blocks can handle over 1000hp.

    WELL OVER 1000HP!! Proper preparations of course! These blocks are nearly bullet proof.
