    Default Ford introduces the new "Werewolf" cast-iron block

    the engine will likely be used by builders looking to achieve around 1500 to 2000 horsepower

    It is amazing that the stock aluminum block can handle up to 1500 hp unmodified.
    Joe Holt here in Farmington has run 8 teens @ 170+mph using a stock block in a twin turbo full bodied 2014 Mustang making 1500-1600 hp...before he found a crack in his stock Coyote crankshaft.

    I'll bet that block is pushed way beyond 1500HP.
