That a kangaroo or cheese billet block?


Judging by the cross main bolts, it's the real deal AMS.

LSM then.  People have had decent luck with them.  Then again I know AMS has made some fairly significant changes to the sleeves based on having a few in the field getting leaned on.

Yeah the real secret isn't who makes the billet block. The real secret is the machining and how it's put together to keep the headgasket together to withstand 222mph traps. I'm not saying my block is as strong as ETS's race car but it's spec'd by the same machine shop. The LSM did need a lot more machining than the Williall for it to come to spec, but in the end it did come to spec. 

 

Even if AMS made a lot of changes, have those changes worked to keep Gidi's car together at 200+ traps? I'm pretty sure there are still hurdles on that, especially on the headgasket side.

 

I'm not knocking AMS at all. I love their stuff and will probably get an Alpha X.  I'm just saying it's how everything is spec'd to xyz tolerances, built/put together that is way more important than just the hardware.
