I 100% agree. The pump that comes with the kit is great for a starter, but the block is very strong.
I'd only maybe upgrade to a HK block... and even then, I dont know if i'd get any decent gains from it.

If you're looking for aesthetics, the plexi blocks are much nicer, however if your end goal is performance, this block is on par with some of the better ones out there.
