It will work fine for what you want.
Forged pistons are better, but the hypereuctic should hold up ok unless you plan to SC or TC it later.

The top left picture says it is an 87 (E7) block.

The rest of the numbers I'm not sure, but I think they are casting numbers.

It's as good as any other roller block and it will be fine for most uses.
If you plan on high HP, TC or SC then I would go with an aftermarket 4-bolt main block if it fits your budget.


I don't know what the other letters mean, sorry.
Do a search on Google for 5.0 engine block number or tags decoding and you may turn up some explanations.

Got it, here's a link to decoding the block. Your second pic is the date code which is august 28 1986

Standard block has 2 bolts per main bearing cap, a 4 bolt main has 4 bolts on certain main bearing caps, can't remember which ones at this moment. 4 bolt is supposed to be able to handle more hp.

The FRPP boss block has 4 bolt mains on the #2, 3, and 4 main caps and is the strongest block out there other than the dart block which is about the same!

And also the Boss block has thicker cylinder walls, which makes it capable of being stroked to a 363 as well.
