    Morning all,
    I am looking to buy a set of H Rods for our 3uz and wondered who we should talk to about sourcing engine rebuild parts in the UK (Shells, rings gaskets etc) Also are there any pitfalls in rebuilding these engines that I need to be aware of ?
    Cheers in advance.
    Paul.

    Performance parts are hard to find for these engines, and sometimes you have to use parts intended for a different application, and modify them to suit. ARP head studs and conrods are good examples. IIRC the rods that Lextreme used to sell were some flavor of Chevy rods that he had machined to the correct offset.

    I thought you had a hotrodder over there in the UK who was specializing in 1UZ performance parts?
