I'm curious too (only curious) so I did a Google search for "bbm 427 block" and lo and behold, one of the top hits is any of several topics here in this forum. I'm only curios right not, not motivated (it's 115*F outside, and the pool is motivating me a lot more than info on a FE block) so I'll defer to others and/or the OP as to why this is such a special thing

Enlighten us, please.

They're nice pieces and the folks on my other forums like them a lot. I run an original DIF iron block from centuries ago, so it's well seasoned to say the least. But if I didn't have that I would consider a BBM.

Now, I will say I like the following:

Donít need to sell and know this ad will shake the stupid tree so here are the Doís and Doníts:
Donít contact me if you donít know what a BBM 427 FE block is.
Donít contact me with offers below my asking price. This is a super rare item right now.
Do contact me if you understand what youíre looking at and have cash.
Donít contact me unless you want to buy
Donít ask for trades.
Donít ask for a payment plan.
Donít ask me tech questions about the block like how much it can be bored, what is HP, etc.
This is for big boys only.

I thought that was quite good also Patrick.

For the uninitiated, BBM stands for Bear Block Motors. Bear Block Motors is located SoCal and produces a wide range of block, head and intake manifold products for FE engines. They also have a 392 Hemi block offering and a to die for Coyote block.

This is a link to their website click here =>Bear Block Motors. They produce some extremely high quality iron and aluminum castings using casting talent and engineering talent from Hyundai, if I am not mistaken. The parts are on par with the best OEM manufactured cast components you can find anywhere, these are not your typical aftermarket alternatives.

Cobras are usually close to 50/50 weight distribution. So likely no additional weight up front.

My engine builder just built me a 496 BBM. The block does and all others should be fully machined. I donít recall how much he charged for just a machined block.

You're a brave man for calling me a dick behind a computer screen. Sorry I hurt your mangina. I think you should reconsider your tone because we will meet at some cobra event. I think your attitude will improve in a hurry when we do.

Thanks to all who appreciated my candor and honesty or didn't care one way or the other *which is the majority* you got the ad and know the frustrations of selling anything of value online. I sold a KC 482 on here years ago and the wimpy, nervous, double minded guys drove me up the wall. Luckily this piece sold along with a set of TF heads, T&D rockers, Scat Forged stroker kit, etc sold in 30 mins.

The intent of my ad meant to say, If you don't know what your looking at don't contact me, I'm working on a very demanding project and don't have allot of time for silly questions. I was being honest and upfront. I see ads like this and appreciate the directness, if it's something I don't need I keep scrolling not wishing them ill.

But there are these thought police that want to start arguments on FB behind the anonymity of a computer screen. They are quick to point fingers and talk big. To my new buddy Mike: if you want to call me a dick to my face you are most welcome to give it a try. I mean come on dude a decent human being doesn't call a man names unless he's willing to do it face to face. We are in the same club, share the same passion, love our cobras why you gotta waste people's time and start **** is beyond me. I'm too busy for such silliness. You and your little FB hit squad should go work on your cars or do something positive in the world instead of calling names and starting arguments. Feel sorry for you man.

So to all the vocal FB jack wagons that like to pick apart fellow cobra brothers and start arguments because their dicks are too short you have my sincerest apology for hurting your mangina.

So Mike, why ya gotta be such a dick? And HiTech, why in the hell am I having to look up to see WTF a mangina is?



Ok kids...everybody lighten up. I just had full implants. No...not my tits...they're big enough (could use a shave though). Uppers and lowers...all in 2 days, including yanking teeth and bone grafts. I'm reading this while in the midst of a 60s-level high from some Vicodin, good Scotch and other stuff, and y'all are disturbing my moment of peace.


Pretty please?

This is actually the most funny thread since long. I get the seller and also Mike (ERA 626).
You both should have a bear together, because either of you have a point.

I didn't know there is a FB jail - lol!

There is definitely a FB jail. I have a friend who regularly gets 30 days due to repeat offenses. He sort of gets around it by having 3 or 4 accounts that he posts from. One of the accounts that he uses is him as his pet dog. Maybe he could avoid jail if he restricted the audience of his posts or avoided posting in areas that Karens might easily get offended by what he says or how he says it...
