Block yes. Parts of the pistons are different, though.

I don't personally know all the specifics, but it appears the block and crank are interchangable.

Recently..(past summer) we had a member swap from an SC block to an non SC block. He hasn't driven it much yet..and I'm not sure I'd advise it.

Look up Sandrock, or Jinx..lol

Was it a bare block with SC internals or a short block?

Im sure the sc has flat top pistons and beefed up rods. hopefullly with a 30 over bore done to the non sc block and using new sc pistons and rods will add a few more horses. i will search for a scat crank "just incase" is it easier to pull motor up or drop the sub frams out bottom?
