455 Buick Aluminum Cylinder Block
455 Buick Aluminum Cylinder Block


    TA Performance is proud to introduce our new, all aluminum 455 Buick engine block! This block has been specifically designed for every engine build imaginable. There are three versions of the TA aluminum 455 block available, a stock replacement version, a raised cam version, and a raised cam, tall deck version. Each block has been designed to use every big block head available, from stock iron heads to our Stage 1 through 4 heads. All available big block intake manifolds will still fit on the stock and street/strip block, however a new intake manifold will be required when using the race version of the TA 455 block due to the increased deck height.

 

Differences between the blocks:

  • Stock block has standard mains, cam, cam height, 10.570” deck height that can be lowered to 10.200”
  • Raised cam block has 3” mains and uses a 54mm Ford cam bearing, cam has been raised 1.035” to 6.080” to allow for longer pushrods & larger strokes, 10.570” deck height that can be lowered to 10.200”.
  • Raised cam, tall deck block has or 3” mains and uses a 54mm Ford cam bearing, cam has been raised 1.035” to 6.080”, tall deck height of 11.700” that can be lowered to 11.200”. This block will allow strokes up to 5.750”
