Filling the block will add rigidity to the block and cylinder walls. It'll help keep the cylinder walls straight which will help the rings seal better and that should equal to more power. I don't have the block filled in my truck but I filled the block in my car for that reason especially with a factory block not designed for high horsepower.

Over 60k+ miles on a partially filled block in my 02 DD. Good piece of mind IMO.

Have you seen how thin the webbing and water jackets are?

A mixture, which appears similar to concrete, used to strengthen the block. Depending on the amount of fill used will determine streetable use, as some go full fill and others only do half or less. All depends on the use of the vehicle and how much of the cooling capacity you are comfortable with depleting
