I'd like some opinions on new block for my turbo setup.

Hey everyone. I've got a 91 coupe stock block, custom turbo setup w/precision T-77 turbo, tial 40mm wategate, all supporting, fuel blah blah blah. I'm in the market for a new short block. Stocker has 120,000 miles on her and its time to retire her. I'm still undecided with what kind of/who's block to go with. I want to stay with a small block. Boost-wise I'm looking to get as much as I can out of it on pump gas, aprox 20psi and then run about 25psi on water/methanol injection. I want to be able to rev comfortably in the 7000rpm range. Not looking to go with a big lopey cam. Very mild grind. The turbo will make up for it

I contemplated on building the stock block, but then with what I want to throw at it I'll be worrying about splitting the block. Theres a lot to choose from. What would you guys suggest for what I have in mind?

If you can get the new Boss block, then that's what I'd get.....From what I've read, all that needs to be done it the finish bore....And for $1600, that's a good deal.....

Either new Ford Boss 302 block
or the Dart Sportsman block
Both a basically the same thing, i think the boss maybe
a little cheaper.

for completely unbreakable block get the
Dart Iron Eagle, but they cost over $2k

What about a block assembly? I'd rather not have to deal with assembling the bottom end my self if I can get away with it. This is going to be street driven a lot btw.

I just had a Dart block built and my cousin just had a new Boss block done. Both are a great foundation for what you want. What size engine are you thinking about building?
