Reasearching 496 kits. This any good? Others?

I just traded for a 454 4 bolt main block and am looking at rotating assembly kits. I know that Procomp in a lot of circles has not had a very good rep. I am building this on a budget or as much of one as you can really do with a bigblock! Any experience with this kit, seller? Any other suggestions in the same or close price range?

Thanks!!

Wade

Thanks! That does look like a better kit. I wonder if he sells it with a flywheel setup instead of the flexplate. Its funny, my first BB build I did not spend wisely. I did wined up with a 400 rwhp 454. But doing more research I could have done a 496 for as much as I had in the 454 or maybe less!!!

Thanks
Wade
