    yeah thats where I saw them on ebay. Emailed them but the brands of things they use I have not heard of them. This is what I got back from them:

    "

    Hi,
    CAM - DYNOTEC, PISTONS - HYPERTEC FLAT TOP, VALVES - ORIGINAL, ROCKERS - ORIGINAL FACTORY (VALVES AND ROCKERS ARE CHEMICALLY CLEANED AND CHECKED) IF YOU REQUIRE NEW VALVES WE CAN SUPPLY AT EXTRA COST.

    THE STAGE 4 CAM SPECS ARE 214/224.

    THIS ONE IS A SMOOTH SOUND WITH SLIGHT LUMPINESS WHERE YOU COULD STILL HAVE THE FAMILY IN CAR AND ENJOY A WEEKEND DRIVE.

    OUR DYNOTEC CAM IS AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, PLUS FROM OUR SUPPLIER THAT IS HOW THE CATEGORISE THEM FROM STAGE 1 THRU TO STAGE 6, ETC.
    STAGE 1 BEING ALMOST ORIGINAL SPECS AND STAGE 6 BEING TOUGH AND REAL LUMPY. NOTE THAT FROM STAGE 4 AND ABOVE YOU WILL NEED A HI-STALL CONV WHICH WE CAN SUPPLY FOR AN EXTRA COST OF $660.00 FOR A B&M.

    THIS WOULD BE YOUR PERSONAL CHOICE, WE SUPPLY A MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP AND IT WILL CLEAR THE P/S BOX.

    THIS WOULD REQUIRE AT LEAST A HOLLEY 650 OR YOU CAN OPT FOR A QUADRAJET CARBY.

    GOING FROM A STAGE 4 TO A STAGE 6 CAM AND WITH ALLOY INTAKE, THIS WILL GIVE YOU APPROX 360-370 HP.)

    WE GIVE THE GOOD STARTER AND FLEX PLATE JUST AS AN EXTRA FOR BUYING ENGINE SO NO DECREASE IN PRICE.

    YOU CAN FIT YOUR OWN TIMING CHAIN COVER, BUT THAT MEANS WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOCK THE SUMP AND THAT YOU WOULD THEN NEED TO DO THAT.
    WE CAN SUPPLY YOU A CHROME ONE TO SAVE YOU THE HASSLE.

    SHIPPING CAN BE DONE A COUPLE OF WAYS, PICK UP FROM NEAREST NQX DEPOT FOR $99 OR TO YOUR DOOR $155 OR PICK UP FROM OUR STORE.

    I HOPE I HAVE ANSWERED ALL YOUR QUESTIONS AND PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL OR RING JAMIE ON 07 5535 5055 TO DISCUSS FURTHER.

    Yeah i changed the dissy out for an MSD ready to run.The starter that comes with them is usless....well in a hg anyway,it might be ok in a Q.Zero pipe room ,so i went for the CVR Starter,Also had to change the flex plate to a 153 tooth.My new cam and lifters arrived today,i went with a comp cam,close to a 286 and got my eyes on a set of heads.Don't get me wrong ,it is not a bad package, i just want a few more ponies.

    Dan, sounds like you should have just had a motor built for what you wanted... probs would have worked out cheaper in the long run mate.

    sorry man.... you being sarchastic or what?

    just seems to me that if you buy a motor and change everything it may be better just to get one built to your specs.

    I have a friend that is VERY good with this stuff, you will have to ship it to NSW now though as he just moved. if I get another engine built I will do just this as he is excellent.

    Sorry mate,of course i was being sarchastic,or just a spastic. As if a big cuddly teddy bear like you could rub someone up the wrong way.

    All jokes aside,i should just learn to be happy with what i have,leave the Prem alone and hurry up and find a wagon to start on.

    Hi bigafoot, firstly just wanted to say that we are new to this forum and I searched our business name and all this came up.

    We can build any Chev engine to suit any of your needs. You can change Cam, Colour, Accessories, hp, etc.
    We also specialise in T/350, T/400, T/700, C4, C6 etc.
    All our engines and fully rebuilt transmissions come with warranties. So this eases the customer about the purchase of spending hard earned cash and then to have an issue. It is always covered with the warranty on what ever particular engine you get from us. If you are still looking for an engine, give us a call or email me at - pjsengines@gmail.com to discuss further. I will be attempting to get on this site more often.

    Thanks
