Hey there guys,

I am looking for a rebuild kit for my little mighty might 340, and I have ordered the PAW catalog so that I can price out their kits (since their site blows). I had to pay 14 smackers for it (because im in Canada), but from what I have seen before, their advertised prices for rebuild kits actually beat Summit racings prices. Anyways, what i want to ask is if anyone agrees with this, or if anyone has used PAW and wants to share their experience. Also, if anyone knows of engine rebuild kits that are cheaper somewhere other that PAW and Summit, please hit me up.

Thanks

I buy all kinds of stuff from them and have been very pleased with them. I haven't yet bought an engine or rebuild kit, but many of their other parts. It's essentially the only speed shop in San Fernando Valley now.

Since your north of the border; I'd be paying close attention to shipping costs of the different companies. That may be the deciding factor of where I'd buy parts from the U.S.

I always use Northern Auto Parts.  Seem cheaper than anybody else and very user friendly.  Just look under "engine kits".

PAW is as good as mail order gets. bought a big chevy short block kit a while ago, arrived on time, machine work right on. Shipping was priced right,as well as packaged right.
