Good pistons, same ones that i have in mine. They only seem to mention pistons, block, rods, and crank. Component price appx $ 1,000. leaving 1000 for machining. and balancing etc.
they're shipping robs you though. It can be insured and shipped for about 125 to 140 not 275.
I agree with Joe. Might as well buy the kit and do your own assy, with the help of mechanically-minded friends. You would want to check it anyway, so this way you do the work once - and you'll learn a lot more! ::
As Mike says, KKtell can give you, uh, alternate views of CHP. For my part, I used a CHP kit, assembled it myself, no issues to this point *shrug* ...but that was 6 years ago now...
I bought a stroker from Keith Craft. I haven't driven it yet, but on the dyno it was good for 410HP. They were very good at accommodating my many requests. I supplied valve covers, oil pan, dizzy and some hardware. I wanted a less aggressive cam than the motor I selected originally had.
All in all a very pleasant experience. My only gripe, they did not complete drain the cooling system after the dyno run. I filled the cooling system up over the weekend and discovered a little rust. Not a big problem since I had only added water, but it was annoying.
As I pick up my M&FF mag... the very last page, CHP shortblock 347ci is $1999.00. Now that's for a 347GT package. The 347 street fighter package is $2299.00. The 331 street fighter shortblock is $2299.00. I don't see anywhere where they offer a 331 in the GT package. Which is what the same interals they are showing in CHP advert 347 GT package. Hope this helps.
