    Complete legible sentences would help a little, plus the post is kinda vague at best.

    How much are you looking to spend? GM Performance Parts has lots of choices. So do many aftermarket companies.

    Here's a few quick choices-

    Pace Parts sells GMPP crates

    Scoggin Dickey sells GMPP and their own crates

    Beck Racing Engines sells good ones

    Bill Mitchell Crate Motors

    Thats a quick list.

    Depending on what combo you get, depends on what "other parts" come with it. You will need the brackets and pulleys and other front motor accessories. You will most likely need to beef your tranny and driveline.

    As stated above, a little more info on your situation and what you want will net alot more responses.
