#7 and #8 are always the cylinders I have problems with; they detonate first when you're tuning, setting the deal for the rest of the engine.

The 4.6 iron block that I recycled had #6, 7, and 8 clearances getting bigger as it went back; #8 was 4 mils over in the middle of the bore, kinda like a barrel.
#7 was wider at the top, lol.
All the other ones were close to stock; that had to be heat.

As a contrast, the Teksid engine I bought measured 3.552 -.0001 to 0.0006 inc. on all axes, all the way to the bottom of the sleeve.

It apparently got fed enough quaker state to choke it out, with one imrc open, and one closed.
Judging from the rear end damage of the donor car, it doesn't accelerate very well that way.
I'm not sure on what block Rick has but I do know its a bored/stroked 5.3. Not sure how that translates to the cooling but with the TFS heads on the 2 valve I wouldn't think that would be AS MUCH of an issue. But I'm no expert on building these engines per se or at least the water flow/cooling aspect of them.

It is something for him to definitely look into and could be the issue. I thought most of the cooling issues were related to the 4V motors rather than the 2V's but again, I'm not sure on it. I've never had the issue with my 2V stockers over all the years that I'm aware of. When my stocker went a couple years ago it took out #1 & #2 Cylinders but was the result of a lean condition on spray when the wire came loose from the fuel pump killing fuel at 1000 ft out.

I will be modifying my new teksid block with the mod to insure cooling on the rear cylinders.
