    I got mine from Jegs, the price was VERY reasonable and the customer service was very helpful in determining what kind of rebuild kit I need/want. I don't remember the price off-hand but I'm sure I still have the receipt somewhere.

    If you ain't stuck, you ain't tryin!!!!!

    I second PAW (Performance Automotive Warehouse). Their catalog is the Bible of engine parts (about 2000 pages). They have EVERYTHING.

    Gotta say PAW. If you can't find it in their catalog, you probably don't need it.

    thanks for the info guys, I heave heard or dealt with almost all of the ones listed. In the back of magazines sometimes you see unbelievavle deals from places I haven't heard of. one was offering complete 350 rebuild kits pistons cam etc with
    trw bearings for $155.00 but since it sounds to good to be true it probably is. has anyone ever ordered one of these kits
    from a no name company. it's probably pretty risky.

    Hey BaBlazer73, I LOVE northern autoparts. I live only about a mile and a half from them, right in good ol' sioux city. I'm thinking about getting a job down there over the summer. I bet we could score some good deals on bulk orders if i do work there. They have high-performace 350 kit that looks pretty sweet. I've always gotten great service from them whenever I go down there. just my $.02.
