    Does anyone in here know where I can get a 350 that needs a rebuild? Prefferably in the Seattle area. Ill have to have it barged to Juneau.
    Thanks

    Brian, you can't find one anywhere locally??? I would imagine, after cost and time, a short block from GM would be a better $$ deal. Just a suggestion...

    I live just outside of Seattle, and I would think the $300 for a block (typically) would turn into a lot more after you have someone box it up, and barge it. Have you already checked on the pricing of barging a block?

    I am wiht DOrian on that. I wanted to do the same thing to cut some cost. After dipping, magnifluxin, buying new balanced parts, having the block machined to the exact parts dimensions( first step of blue printing a block), final assembly misc. parts. It cost me 3K more than I expected and 1700 more than a GM performance assmebled block kit. AND my numbers werent much higher than the GMs.
