Looking to buy either a recently reconditioned 304 engine, or a 355 stroker. I'm open to all options and specifications and power outputs, will consider all enquiries. It will be going in the ute. Pm me if you have or know of any offers in WA. Thankyou

Try Pavtek a call. They are in Melbourne but could send you a crate motor easy enough.

I've just had a look on their website, and the crate motors look nice, and very well priced. Whats the quality of work like from pavtek? I would be expecting engines with those power figures to be costing a fair bit more, why are they so cheap?

dunno. They have a good rep. Never heard anything bad about them and plenty of good experiences.

Yea I'm a massive fan of SHYGMH, didn't know that it was a pavtek engine though. Have got the guy from pavtek to email me a full quote including all the costs including freight etc. Just working out now whether it will be cheaper to go with pavtek or just get something built up here in perth.

watch your cranks if you build it locally. There are only a couple of stroker cranks I'd let near my car. Procomp is not one of them.

Well I've just been down to Hi Flow Engines and had a talk to them, my mechanic recommended them. They have done a few stroker engines which have made it into Perth Street Car magazine, he was more than happy to show me around his workshop and explain to me some of the current project engines he was working on. He can build me a 355 stroker for $8000, which I am pretty happy with. He is using either Come or Scat parts for the rebuild, so no procomp garbage:)
