How far does that block look like it can be bored out? I'd love a big bore short stroke boss engine.

4.185, after that the spacing between cylinders gets thin and it's hard to keep a head gasket in the motor, which is simply a function of the 4.380 bore spacing on small fords. 4.155 x 3.250, that will work nicely, and its a shelf piston

at .0025 clearance its not bad, with a 2618 forged piston and making some big power setting the piston to wall at .005+ I will not do. This is a 450-475hp N/A must pass emissions build for a california customer and his wife. He mandated the use of the Boss block.

head gaskets

Woody, What head gaskets do you use on your boss block builds? FRPP recommends either M-6051-S331 or M-6051-CP331. According to summit's website, the S331 is multi layer steel and the CP331 is composite? Is this accurate information? Will any other composite gaskets work on this block?

'93 Cobra 10.26 @ 129.08 1.39 sixty foot
'04 Lightning 13.39 @ 101.80 1.91 sixty foot

I'm aware of the short-cylinder issue-feature. If one can ignore it for a moment, judging by looking at the pictures, it seems the Boss block is about the stoutest thing you could ever imagine putting in a car. That thing is plain THICK.

Day 233 bump

I know you're busy but it's just wrong to leave us hanging. So here is a free bump for the 233 day of the build, any update?
