It's only a $1400 option or something like that from MMR...if you're dumping 3k on a short block anyhow...I'd just save a few more pennies and get the big bore option. It's what I am doing currently as well....just going to save a little longer and get the big bore.

Re: need opinions on shortblockk

It will survive more power as it is a proven cobra block. It might bump your power a little due to a change in compression ratio depending on which piston dish you select. If you go with stock compression, it won't bump your power at all, but will be ready for more.
