Gen 4 still have some issues. And 4-500hp your not using much of the stock assembly. Crank and blocks about it.
Have you considered beams? Or late 5s blocks? Bot imo have large advantages over gen 4. Even more so at elevated hp levels.
I always saw the gen 4 as the go to for a 250-300awhp set up. Outside of that the benefits start to diminish especially when considering cost.
Curious on your reasons for gen 4? CAS? COP? Block casting? Sump?

Plus money spent going gen 4 can go a long way on a gen 2. Such as turbo or ecu or forged.

my point is the $3k from a gen 4 front cut could be spent on ecu and turbo.
not all gen 4 blocks are the revised casting so cracking can still occur.
the crank angle sensor set up isnt needed until high rpm.
the head flows marginally better but again no cam options.
i run a gen 3 and wish i had of gone a beams swap. but my point is depending on hp sometimes money is better invested in building up what you have then buying a new motor that may or may not require a rebuild....
tonnes of people make high hp on gen 2.
