Changing to the LS platform would be a huge PITA. Basically everything would be different. I mean,EVERYTHING! :m Besides I can make as much or more HP n/a with the Sb2.2 than an LS. I have lots of parts also for keeping the SB2.2 platform alive for a long time. Only thing I don't have is a big inch short block,hence the Little M Dart block.

The Little M starting out at 4.125 bore and will still be good to go @ 4.185 with minimum cylinder walls of .275 thick. That will give me years and years of refreshes .005 at a time. The things are 2000 HP capable strength wise. I'm having Patterson Elite in Augusta,Ks get it for me. They have been tight with Dart forever so maybe,just maybe,the 16 weeks will at least be realistic.

That sucks on the engine block.  Glad you found something that will work for you.  I have to ask (I know it's probably been covered) why you don't go with an LS platform?  I know you are probably in too deep now with fit, accessories, etc.

 I did get lucky and have a new MD5 sitting in the shop, with all new lower gear ratios

I can't believe how Covid has effed me. First Dart informs me they don't have a clue when they would be making any more Iron Eagle blocks for the foreseeable future . They don't actually have their own foundry like Brodix so they have little control on when they get castings. Effin Covid.      I then go looking for a used one but of course I want some options such as .927 bronze bushed heyway lifter bores/55mm roller cam bearings/raised cam/Sb2.2 lifter pattern ,etc..   Rare as hens teeth but I located one and as far as I can tell it is probably one out there anymore.    Ok ,cool,I decide to buy it.   Effin circle track guys are flaky as all get out and I'm on my way to inspect/buy. I get a call informing me he had decided to keep it. At least I wasn't very far,could have been worse like 12 fricken hours further!!!  5:   Fast forward a few days and I decide to call Dart and see if there was any availability of a Little M block. They said yes,but,16 weeks out with the options I need.  Eff me. 

  On a bright note though ,I did score a new,used for mock up only Morel DLC coated .926 keyway lifters for a killer deal. Retail for these things is minimum of $2600 a set and I got them for $500.  ;D 8) ;D   Also found a Jesel raised cam belt drive about $150 under going price.  I guess some things are going right. :m

On a side note,since Dart isn't seeing fit to get me a block anytime soon,I will be picking up a second hand SB2.2 Dart Iron Eagle with .927 keyway lifters next week just like I have but a lot more inches. Things are rare as hen's teeth.   Getting a second SB2.2 top end as well from Joe Gibbs Racing. Should be power makers since they are from his last year running the SB2.2 around 2005.  I should get in the neighborhood of 900 at the crank easily and hopefully 700 at the wheel with those heads and 437 inches. Based on the 360 incher I have now that should be doable. This will be a bigger brother clone of the 360. Fun times ahead in October!

Great to hear!  900 ponies, yes, I want a ride!  Pleaseeeeee!   :m
That would need to be pretty pleaseeeeee!! :) :)
