CNC Block Lightening

Inside of the block water passages are digitized and committed to computer memory. This data is used to generate the desired surfaces of the outside of the finished, lightened block. The program used can be adjusted for the amount removed easily. This method gives consistent thicknesses throughout the lightened areas and maximum weight reduction. (i.e Iron is not too thick in one place and too thin in another, it's a uniform thicknes all over). Others doing this are either very expensive or have a very simple program that doesn't take off as much weight as is possible.

  maincap   On Big Block Chevy Engines we can lighten the main caps saving weight without reducing structural integrity. On Big block Chevys we can reduce 10 pounds just in the main caps.
