351W race block question

My brother has torn down a motor that he bought in a super street asphalt race car, and trying to figure out what kind of block it is. i could search for it on the internet, but he only has dial up, so it is slow as hell... Could someone please help me out with this.

The number on the block is E3ZM-6015-A351

I appreciate any help that is given...

351W race block question

Isn't the E3 (ZM) (A351)part numbers usually mean that its a SVO block. I think its a Sportsman block that has non-siamese cylinders, 434ci capacity, wet or dry sump, accepts hyd roller tappets, can be overbored more if sonic checked, two bolt main bearings, 3.000" main bearings but 2.749" size kit can be used with spacer kit, 9.5" deck height but can be milled down to 9.2", one piece rear main seal, and this block is made from a specially formulated cast iron also used in NASCAR/Winston Cup blocks for improved hardness, strength, and dimensional stability. This material offers excellent piston ring sealing. Main bearing webs offer enough material for the installation of four-bolt main caps. Support ribs exist at each engine mount. Thick pan rails are employed for reinforcement.

I'm not totally sure that this is the block that you have, but I'm guessing that it is.

yeah, took it to a speed shop to have some work done, and it is an SVO block. According to the shop mechanic. Knew it was not a regular ole block. 4 bolt main, 2.749 mains, and thick as hell everywhere. Having it blueprinted, and checked over. might have a crankshaft issue, but that will be updated later..
