A Honda K-Series K24 Billet Engine Block, capable of withstanding over 1,700bhp, has been released by Magnus Motorsports. Constructed from 6061 aluminum with a 7075 aluminum girdle, it weighs 33kg, just double the weight of a standard block, but with 10 times the torsional strength.
The raw block of aluminum is finished near to size, then heat treated and retested to verify its condition before external surfaces and sleeves are machine finished. The 7075 main caps are installed and align honed.
Magnus Motorsports says no additional machining is needed for the clearance of a 106mm crank or aluminum rods, while blocks can be constructed with or without a water-jacketed application and are machined in-house using a 5-Axis DMG-Mori CNC machine.
Installing centrifugally spun Ductile Iron Dry Liners with 4-bolt mains using ARP hardware completes the process.
