Product Description

084030 MOTOWN II bare block, 4.115" bore, 400 mains, nodular splayed 4-bolt caps

World Products has developed a refined version of its popular MOTOWN block in the form of the MOTOWN II, and now offers it in over two dozen iterations for small block Chevrolet applications. The MOTOWN II boasts 152 fluid ounces of coolant per side and has demonstrated stability lauded by racers and professional engine builders alike. A MOTOWN block won the inaugural Engine Masters Challenge and it was worth about 20 horsepower over others, thanks to its outstanding design and overall stability.

GET IT PREPPED! For the enthusiast who is planning to assemble an engine in their home garage, getting the block in a RACE-PREPPED state is a no-brainer. Our experienced staff performs important basic operations like: • Deck milling +/- .0025” • Main journal honing +/- .0004” • Cylinder bore plate honing .001” oversized +/- .0005” • Lifter bore honing +/- .0005” • Block hot tanking • Cam bearing installation • Freeze plug installation • Dowel pin and pipe plug installation • Block deburring • Machined surfaces sprayed with rust inhibitor • Protective wrapping

More and more professional engine builders are also recognizing the benefits of ordering race-prepped blocks instead of endeavoring to perform these many tasks themselves. Many have realized that their time can be better spent doing critical assembly work such as degreeing in camshafts and setting up the valve train. By employing race-prepped World blocks the shop’s through-put can be accelerated, and there are demonstrated savings in terms of personnel, shop equipment, space and cash flow. Whether you're an enthusiast or engine builder, save time and money!
