Bowtie Sportsman Blocks

Bowtie Sportsman Blocks
Step up to serious street/strip performance when you choose a Chevrolet Performance Sportsman Block. These iron blocks provide a rock-solid foundation for any application in the 350–500-horsepower range, be it drag strip, circle track or high-performance street machine. These highly versatile blocks are available in a variety of finish options that enable maximum flexibility for building a wide range of engine combos. Most of the blocks have siamesed cylinder walls1 and 4-bolt main caps2 that are secured with Grade-8 bolts. Chevrolet Performance Bowtie Sportsman Blocks have 9.025-inch deck heights. NOTE: Bowtie blocks are called out by main journal sizes (i.e., 283, 350 or 400) and then by bore size (i.e., 283, 305, 350 or 400) if the bore is not standard to the main size. Example: P/N 24502650 – “283 Main-350 Bore size”– has standard 283 main journal sizes; however the bore is standard 350 size.
