the stuff is a good bit stronger then stock stuff so they say. It should out last the stock block as far HP. I think they rate that stuff at 650 hp or so. but that don't mean it wont take more.

The basic cast steel stuff from Eagle and Scat as as strong as or stronger than the stock stuff(the stock stuff is still pretty strong). It's generally lighter too.
