I use nothing but summit for most of my online purchases. I am 100% satisfied with their service!

Thumbs up

For mail order or internet order things I use Summit 80% of the time and Jeg's the rest of the time. Both are great and get things to me on time like they say.

As for shipping, the only time I had to pay more than the $7.95 handling fees, was when I bought my rear wheels and tires. The wheels were oversize, and the tires were oversize and non-box.

There tech support is outstanding at both, but I prefer Jeg's because it is a 800 number. Heck, every penny helps.

One other point, don't overlook your local automotive machine shop or engine builder. If you develop a good working relationship with one, they can and will beat the mailorder prices for their regular customers. You also have the benefit of being face to face with him and can get all the assistance you may require.

Talking

Autozone seems to always hire someone (usually a chick), that needs the color of the vehicle before they can continue. Also, since they have adopted the McDonalds method of hiring idiots and letting the "computer" do the thinking, you can forget any abstract thought or problem solving help. O'Reilys is down the street, but they are WAY higher on performance items. Mail order is cheaper, especialy concidering our local 9% sales tax.

Once I get my block machined and the heads finished, I'm going to sit down with my machine shop guy and decide what I need to do next. This is the first time I've had this guy do work for me, but he used to build my fathers racecar engines, so I know he does good work.
