69CamaroRacer, that was my first thought too! I have never seen one with "Yenko" cast into it. Then again, I haven't seen all that many all aluminum 427's! Anyone know anything about this?

Yenko bought the rights to cast the ZL-1 blocks for GM. This engine isn't out of an original ZL-1; it would be a counter replacement built in the 70's I believe or available over the counter from Yenko and assembled as a ZL-1 style motor.

I also have one of the Yenko aluminum blocks in my 69 although it's stamped into the block, not cast; this was what I was told.

Clill, what's the true story?
