Standard 4.840 or 4.900 spread bore spacing provide large bore capacity. The camshaft is raised .400 above the stock location to increase clearance for the connecting rods and crankshaft counter weights, and the main oil gallery is located alongside the camshaft tunnel to eliminate interference with the crank assembly.

Advanced engineering makes Dart aluminum big blocks the choice for serious competition.
