Default best place to order ls/vtec kit??

I'm looking for a golden eagle full conversion kit but don't know a place to get it? I've been looking all over and I'm looki8ng for a reputable place that doesn't cost a lot. The place I've been looking at is robear racing.com I don't know if anyone knows anywhere else that won't cost a lot and is a good place to go through. Is there another ls vtec kit that is any good like the golden eagle kit? What you guys think bout the ge head gasket? Heard good things and bad things. Thanks guys

Is this the kit and website you're talking about?
http://www.ecrater.com/p/3772689/gol...conversion-kit

What head are you going to use?

if you don't want to spend much money I would get the blackworks ls/vtec kit from jhpusa.com and they also sell the golden eagle full ls/vtec kit for bit more than the website above, but it comes the dowel pins (blackworks does too).
Heres the link:
http://www.jhpusa.com/store/pc/viewP...2&idcategory=0

Haven't heard much about GE head gaskets becuase most use cometic gaskets. I guess if you want one get it.

I got a p72 head with a blox intake manifold I'm using. The website I was using was the robearracing.com site that has free shipping on the kit just looking for a good place to order it from.
The bloackworks kit I've heard isn't good something about the oil sandwich plate leaks. And that the headgasket isn't the best either. Unless anyone has used the blackwork kit with headgasket and had no problems with it??

I don't see the problem with ordering with robearracing.com. Order the golden eagle kit w/ free shipping and do work. It sucks you're on a tight budget or else I would tell ya to piece it together.

Yea I wish I wasn't on a low budget either. The head was on my buddies ls/v teggy but he gave me a hell of a deal on it so now I'm trying to make this my dd then build a block I have put back. I'm probably am going to go through them but I wanted to find someone who ordered from them before so I know I won't get ripped off.

How well can you turn a wrench? I would rather have a full gsr swap for a daily than ls/v. The cost differences are worth it, but maybe other may disagree. I guess its up to you.

Does any body know where the dowel pins go on the block I read on the outer side of the exhaust side of the block on each side. Does anyone know??? I can't find a straight up answer.

Thanks I have a idea now of where the dowel pins go. I just bought a greddy oil sandwich plate from the buddy who sold me his gsr head so all I need is to order the dowel pins, get my ecu and harness adapte and I'm good to go. Thanks!
