    actually there isnt alot covered.

    Ive tried searching but there isnt much on the difference between the two.

    The answer is simple really, both blocks the same. The FHE has stronger rods and has a slightly better head due to the cam but people ask stupid money for these.

    I bought a 5efe engine for 50quid and all i wanted is the block.

    ideally what you want for a 5e is the crank, block and the rods.

    From my understanding there isnt really a need to have forged rods unless you intend on going past the stock rev limit. If not then the stock FHE ones will do fine.
