I've had...less than a successful experience buying used parts. I'd think I would be able to purchase some really good parts that were removed from REAL GOOD motors during a freshen, but I seem to always wind up with parts I don't want to use. So---where are the best places to buy NEW engine parts for my race motor?

Depends on what your looking for and what your budget is. Used is not the best way to go normally. I build a lot of stuff with chinese parts. Scat, Eagle, It's cheaper and if you overbuild, IE use parts rated for more horsepower than your making, you've got a huge margin for error. Carrillo is great if you have the budget. Used NASCAR junk is usually just that, junk. They aren't trying to unload it cause it's still good. If Harvick used it in a race, it's good on your mantel, not on your racecar.

I've had good luck buying engine components from Doug Herbert Performance. I think they are located in North Carolina. They stock items in several price ranges and they'll cut you a break if you have them put together a "kit". They'll let you select the items YOU want from their catalog and still give a kit price.

I usually use a local engine shop that concentrates mostly on all aluminum late model engines. You usually always get the right part plus if its not right you dont have to deal with sending it back and waiting for the next part. Then add on all those shipping charges, its just alot easier to get it locally.

I've gotten parts from www.dirttrackthunder before and was pleased with the price and service.

Lane Automotive / Motor State Distributing out of Watervliet Michigan has about anything you could dream of in stock.

Summit Racing usually has everything in stock, decent prices, and have been very happy with shipping turn around times.

Speedway Motors out of Nebraska has been excellent to deal with also.

I've got a lot of good feedback from people about Competition Products out of Wisconsin and will probably purchase some parts from them in the near future.
