Not many good things have been heard about auto part store engines....Auto Zone, Car Quest or others. A guy near me with a '32 hiboy didn't want to go to the "trouble" of building his own and bought a long block from a NAPA store....BIG mistake!!!! ran like chit, smoked like a battleship, rings never seated, yada.....There's guys on here that buy the newer truck Vortec roller 350's from the boneyard and say they have good runners. I'm sure one of them will be along with more info on that.
