This Block Is Our V4 Closed Deck EJ257 Long Rod Short Block W/ Je Pistons and Outfront +2mm Rods W/ 625+ Bolts. This short block is the go to for 800 BHP and Higher RPM.

This closed deck block design has been proven to withstand extreme boost levels resulting in high cylinder pressures without the worry of cracking a sleeve. The billet material that reinforces the combustion area has been further optimized with our V4 closed deck block in the known problem areas making it a far superior product to any sleeved block. With a closed deck block the stock sleeves are still in place eliminating all risk of dropping sleeves and pushing coolant that you have with a sleeved block. The V4 is a thicker insert only in the known weaker areas of the cylinder. This adds strength to the bore while not compromising cooling. This block comes machined for ½” head studs.

  • Seasoned EJ257 case halves
