    Where do I buy a crate engine in Texas or anywhere?

    Where would be a good website to buy a crate or even rebuilt motor? I drive the 90 s-10 blazer and was told by a friend that the 350s dont rquire and hammering of the body. I would imagine shipping would be alot so if there are any texans here that live in the dallas area then PLEEASE tell me a good place to pick one up. I have about $500 saved up so far but im guessing it will be more than that, my grandpa knows some people with a crane and he has a bit of knowledge of cars so he could prolly help with installation. What do you do with an old motor with leaks? Is there some way I can make a bit of cash off it?

    Check this out its about $3,000 Think it would fit?
    I got a pic ill attach.
    88958602 GMR 350/350 Circle Track Engine
    Great racing power at a reasonable cost (350 HP at 5000 RPM _ torque 390 @ 4000 RPM)

    This is a factory sealed crate engine package, complete from high rise dual plane intake manifold, stamped steel valve covers with racing style breathers, and 8 quart single kick-out circle track racing oil pan.

    The 350 engine is a great value with the nodular cast iron crankshaft, iron vortec heads with 1.94"/1.50" valves, flat tappet hydraulic lifters, and HEI distributor.

    The base engine is a 330 HP 350ci, with the following parts:

    4 bolt iron block
    Nodular cast iron crankshaft
    5.700" PM rod
    Cast aluminum piston
    Camshaft with hydraulic flat tappet lifters
    Iron vortec head
    High rise dual plane intake manifold
    HEI distributor
    8 quart circle track oil pan (with oil filter)
    Valve cover kit with breather tube
    Valve cover breather kit
    Special rocker arm nut "kool nut design"

    Technical Notes: These engines are sealed at the intake manifold, cylinder head, front cover, and oil pan with special twist off bolt heads. The 350 HP @ 5000 RPM was derived from a superflow dyno using a 4 barrel 650 cfm Holley carburetor P/N 80541-1, 32" long by 1 5/8" to a 1 3/4" stepped header with a 3" collector, and 92 octane unleaded gasoline. This engine package DOES NOT include a water pump. Oil pan clears most GM rear steer chassis with stock engine location. Oil pan is 8" deep at sump.

    Scoggin Dickey also has the Ram Jet 350. All you have to do is attach a 12 volt power supply and an electric fuel pump. It's not a racing engine but I didn't get the impression you wanted to race (at least not on a track).:D Pretty good deal for $4,985. 350 HP, 400 LB FT torque. Ram Jet 350 comes complete with wiring harness, MEFI controller and detailed instructions

    www.sdpc2000.com is your best bet. As previously mentioned they are out of texas and have bad ass prices. That is where i was origanlly going to get my crate motor from. But i got a local chevy dealer to match the price and have no shipping costs. Try a local chevy dealer. They can also get pretty much any crate engine gm makes. I have a 260 hp 350 ft/lbs of torque crate. Its the base motor. I believe its around 1300 bucks now. I paid like 1590 a year ago for it but that safter tax and shit. SHipping is usually abour 150 or so. But for like 2500 chevy make sa complelte engine with intake water pump and everythign based off the crate motor i have. If your not to mechincally inclinded you could go with that so you dont have to find what parts match the engine best.

    The in-tank fuel pump would be the easiest conversion because the RamJet is fuel injected and needs the fuel fed to it at a high pressure.
