Im in Syracuse; same information as the above 2 gentlemen.
For my money; theres a litany of good circletrack guys who could throw down a solid shortblock for you for reasonable money. Im not a Buffalonian; but out here; theres Jimmy D's; Enders, Port City Machine in Oswego. If you are going serious high dollar I-want-a-shotgun-in-a-knife-fight; google 'WolfPlace'. Mike builds seriously killer stuff, but hes in California, not worth the shipping for a basic street engine.
What are you looking to buy, aside from valvecovers with someones name stickered on em
