    Where is the best place, price and or brand of bottom end engine rebuild kit online?

    I'm going to be rebuilding my neighbors mid 70's 350 and we'd like to keep it cheap but good quality. Just looking for some other suggestions...I've looked at Summit and Jegs.
    Thanks,
    Brett

    I've never personally dealt with them, and haven't looked at a catalog for awhile, but PAW (Performance Automotive Warehouse) had some pretty decent "package deals" from what I remember.

    I know they are a decent company, many have had pleasant dealings with them, so that counts for something.

    No other ideas, sorry.

    Only thing I hate about "packages" is that they always seem to be missing something you want, or you have to spend more than you want to get one piece you want...like one piece oil pan gaskets, better bearings, etc.

    i bought the engine kit from www.northernautoparts.com for $155. the only complaint is the gasket kit. mine leaked like a sive, but it also could have been my engine.

    it has quality parts for a great price.

    www.northernautoparts.com is an awesome place to get rebuild kits. I always like to get the upgrades for Fel-Pro gaskets and Moly rings though, but even then you can't beat the price.

    get in the Zone....

    My friend bought an engine rebuild kit from autozone for the 69 350 4 bolt I sold him he put in his 62 nova--It had about every moving part,all the gaskets,bearings,pistons,rings,high performance cam,timing chain and gears,freeze plugs,the parts were all name brand,like sealed power pistons,fel-pro gaskets,melling oil pump,clevite bearings, wolverine camshaft,etc---it was about 250 bucks delivered to his shop,they had to order it,took 2 days to get(I suspect they may have gotten it from a place like northern engine supply)--he could not beat the price,even the catolog places were about the same cost after shipping,so he bought it from the "zone"..the only thing he didnt get in the kit he needed was new head bolts,it cost another 35 bucks for them...:crazy:
