Dude- you're near Summit??? I am jealous.

I wonder what the profit margin is for a "discounted" crate motor like that if they can knock $2,000 off the list price? Greedy buggers.

I have to say, if you've never been to summit you don't know what you're missing. Remember super shops? Summits show room is probably 8 times the size, with in store "open box" items only available if you are there personally. Thumbs up jegs is only about 3 hours from here also.

Hey say you did buy that 572, could you get some off the shelf headers to actually fit the motor and the engine bay/frame area????

It is a raised deck block right?

You could have done the 572 engine swap in the parking lot. They don't mind...

The shipping from Summit is cheap by comparison with other vendors, so you don't have to drive half a day (gas $) to be there to shop.
And they have the BEST customer service.....
