Default Teskid or Cast...

Ok I finally got all my stuff gathered for my pi swap i sent my heads to Houston Performance and got a stage 2 p and p and a nice set of cams. I was wondering if its worth the money to get the teskid block and build it or if i should just build my npi block. I know my block will raise my compression not sure if the teskid block will. Any suggestions i will be puttn a 100 shot on this set up. Thanks

All depends if you care about 80lbs less weight on the nose of the car. Some people do some don't.

If you can snag one, Its worth it. 80lbs is a lot off the front end, not to mention the block is strong as all hell.

tiz true. itll hold more than most ppl would ever want. I think its worth it though to spend 300 bucks on a Teksid tho just for the weight savings alone. Thats close to a 10th of a second alone.

I prefer the iron blocks for boosted builds myself. I have measured many a Teksid from a boosted motor and found the bores moving around more so than the iron blocks. Ford seemed to have agreed when they used the iron block for the Terminator.
