Tim Meyer bought out Tod Buttermore's 351C aluminum block development project.

I believe he markets it as the "Track Boss".

Waddell is a smart man and taught me a few things I still use, no argument there. He and Robert Yates are both ex Holman Moody employees that went on to make their own names famous.

Tim is doing a great job with it and I have done some consulting with him on it as well. Many revisions have been made and some castings have been produced for material thickness verification. He is trying to have one ready for this year's PRI show in INDY.
The other offering is the Arrow block from down under in OZ land. I don't have any hands on experience with it.
