I'm pretty sure the higher nickle content thing is a myth, at least I can't find anything to prove it

When I used to Machine Blocks and Cylinder Heads, there were certain castings that would be a little bit more tougher to cut/machine than others.
Not just GM's, Mopars and Fords too. Wish I've documented which ones are those... but for some weird reason the one that I remember are the 2.0 L Blocks from the Dodge Neon... those pesky little engines are pain in the a$$ to machine LOL.

So I do believe that Nickle contents are not all equal on Blocks and Cylinder Heads as cast from the foundry.
