          First, many thanks to Ken Evans for making them available where there were none. Those who need them really need them.

          Second, the factory main caps usually aren't a problem til you are making more than 500 horsepower and the 4-bolt steel caps are a must when more than 750 horsepower is contemplated. There are maybe four Stude racers who've reported in at that level. For the rest of us, they're nice conversation pieces.

          thnx, jack vines

            Wouldn't you have to have the block line bored if you changed the bearing caps? What kind of implications does this have for the cam gears?

            I'm not trying to be a naysayer, nor am I really the target market for this product, just trying to educate myself.

              Nate -

              A good shop knows how to do this.
              They just "kiss" the upper diameter of the bore (in the block), so there is from "no change" if the guy is really good and have very good equipment...to just .0005"/.001" if the guy is mearly just good and has good equipment.

              I know two guys more than capible of doing work like this. Funny thing...neither are cheap...!!!
