hey fella's,

i'm chasing a 331 stroker kit, i've been looking at getting one through this mob http://www.rpmmachine.com/ford-stroker-menu.shtml
but they don't do frieght overseas. i know i can get a kit from rockit, but thats basically an online supermarket. i was hoping to get a kit though a company that have experience and know the product they are selling.

cheers.

No worries. Just make sure when you're building your motor you take plenty of pics and keep us updated regularly! :)

what wrong with buying from rocket? they are cheaper then VPW and performance whole sale on %95 of the items they stock and you're getting well known top quality brands.

you want the guy who's building the engine to know what he's on about, the guy you buy it off doesn't 'need' to anything, so long as you buy the part numbers that you need.

do you want the long or short story bud....

well i went into auto1 (probably not the smartest move) and asked if they could find out about a 331 stroker kit for me through rocket, after hassling them twice i gave up and decided to go through rocket direct, and get this, after sorting it all out, they sent me a stroker kit for a 5L HOLDEN engine!!!

so i doubt i'll be buying much through there from now on!

we spend 30K plus a month with rocket. the odd wrong part gets sent, but for the most part they are far better to deal with then any of the other whole salers

and anyone els in austraila you buy it from only has to get it from one the wholesalers anyway.

thats what id expect from rocket. yeah they have all the good brands, its just the people that are selling you the parts know nothing. much rather deal with vpw.

I've found VPW are more likely to whack some off the price of an order.
Probably not such a big consideration for a workshop.
