The time is right for all you AMC fanatics out there. The aftermarket that so deftly ignored you when AMCs were actually in production, is developing some state-of-the-art parts rivaling the quality of the highest-end speed equipment available for Brand-X. Indy Cylinder Head did the unexpected when they developed this aluminum AMC cylinder block. Two versions are available: standard AMC deck height and a 9.40-inch-tall deck version for long stroke capability. The all-new IC-401 AMC Maxx block has been graced with many oiling improvements over the stock AMC offerings, billet steel splayed main caps, valley cross braces, improved head bolt clamping (an extra row of head bolts were added to use with Indy's new AMC cylinder heads), interlocking high-nickel ductile iron sleeves, all weighing in at a svelte 115 pounds. Compatible with standard AMC heads, front covers, water and oil pumps, distributors, and bellhousings make the new Indy offering as comfortable on the race track as it is on the street. Ramblers never had it so good.
