    So, if I'm translating this right, you popped a piston? Why do you want a new block?
    But to try and answer your original question, for forced induction applications, I would look for a cast iron block. Heavier but stronger.

    sounds to me like he wants/needs a new block due to the valve gouging the sides of the cylinder walls.

    He said there are "heavy scratches in the cylinder". So I'm assuming the block is damaged, and he's looking to get a new, stronger one.

    If you have the money to spend, I'd say go with a LSX block. Its basically an LS1 block in cast iron, and it can be bored/stroked to your spec. The block itself can hold 2500HP, so with an F/I setup with forged components and a low C/R, you should have a bulletproof motor, especially for only 14PSI

    The block itself is $1999 from most places. Check out CrateEngineDepot.com, they have them for sale.

    The internal components are the same as any other LS (Gen III) engine. I'd reccommend forged internals, low compression pistons, and a cam designed for boost. You can find some specific answers on exactly what parts to buy in the Forced Induction section.
