MotiveDVD/PRP RB-block comparison

Recommended Posts

I would have liked to have seen it done with the old n1 block and not a new one

Basically it says they’re all the same and the n1 is the same/worse in pretty much every way but they used a new n1 block not one of the original 90s ones and I’ve heard the material is different in the new ones

Here is another comparison focusing on wall thickness, but they did have an old N1 block.

Meh. If your not aiming for 1000hp you'll do fine with an N1.
People go a bit crazy when stuff like this drops...

Is that a Good option nOw though? Especially with billet blocks available it seems super odd to go down a spacer and sleeve path.

Tomei (who built this motor) rate it to some stupid power level, it's done a few hours now at all an EFR9180 can make, see how it goes I guess?

I’ve got friends with old stock n1 blocks pushing 1000+hp at wheels and backed it up at the track with ET and MPH without any issues 

plenty people making huge power with n1 blocks.....haven’t seen much about the new batch first hand though

From what I remember about materials science, with all other things being equal, there is a hardness vs toughness trade off. The guy in the video seems to think that hardness is everything, whereas I would have thought the hardest blocks would be the most prone to cracking.
