the 87mm billet muzzy block is made in 2 pieces, welded together, then finished.

ZX-12 Big Bore Kit from Muzzys

the turbo 84mm blocks were solid, and damn near "dry"

they weld up the top after one phase of machining, then move on to more machining. thats how they make the water jackets

Weld up woud be the way to go for wet. The 'drier' turbo or grudge block would be quite simple.
No way SBM would get any of my business; he still owes me $ and parts.

this block was on the verge of overheating all the time, and would if the bike was ran too long before a pass. theres just next to no cooling flow. that was a low cr turbo setup that was running on pump gas, with water meth injection. full size stock rad. muzzy fan

same block and pistons, put together with more cr and running a mix of mostly methanol and pump gas, with 2/3 of a rad.... and all my heat issues went away :). love alchy fuels

OK - we need a head count of people who would are serious about a block.
Anticipate a cost of $1000-$1300 semi dry and $1200-1500 wet.

Im interested in a wet block, Im guessing CMG is in for the same thing. but by wet i mean full cooling, not like the turbo block. made thicker would be ok too, not sure why they did the "fins"
