    Default Dart big M or Merlin III blocks

    I am planing a winter build and was wanting to know the pros and cons of the Dart and Merlin blocks, which one do you prefer and why.

    Target, 1000 hp from a blown 565. on meth.

    Plan on making that meth yourself?

    Dart is a better block.

    I have a complete 522 blown on meth. Makes an effortless 1000 HP. Pushed the mini van into the 9's. Doesn't have any time on it at all.

    Would save you a ton of $$ trying to piece one together.

    problem is, I can't put that much money togather all at once. Casino has paid for the block. Now I am working towards a rotating assembly. And half the fun is the build.

    We have a payment plan.

    Don't buy anything until you check with me. Even if buying 1 piece at a time.

    So does the bank.

    It has a clear title now and I'm gonna keep it that way.

    I will get with you and see what you have to offer, I'm old but I'm also open minded. Post up some pics and some specs on the 522, let me know in a pm what you got to have for it.

    I would go with the Dart block, World does not machine their own blocks as they are machined by royal oak.

    If you need a price on a block all machined give me a call as we CNC machine all our blocks and we are a W-D for Dart and we offer blue print cam tunnel work and lifter bore over sizing as well.

    Why doesn't anyone include Brodix blocks or heads into these threads? A superior product IMHO!

    I think its because they are talking iron blocks. When it comes to alum blocks, the baddest boy cast alum block on the planet has to be the New Century, with the Brodix being numbero uno for a stock compatable piece. JMO

    Default Dart hands down

    I have a Merlin motor and am not impressed. Had to fix a lot of issues. Dart is much better quality.
