Reputable shop for a business

Hello
I need your help. I'm looking for a reputable shop which could provide me the following parts:

- Forged Ford Small Block SCAT crank, stroke 3.25", 1 rear main seal (I have the new Boss block and I need only a crank done for 1 rear main seal)
- AFR 185 non emission heads, 72cc combustion chamber
- SFI flexplate for a C6 transmission bolet behing a small block ford

The problem is I contacted a lot of compagnies (Flatender Racing, AD Performance, ...) in the states and I'm still waiting references and shipping quote to Gardena CA. They seem to don not like me or my story which is true...

The story is: a friend of me is flying to CA on the 19th of November and he's preparing a container for vehicles and parts. I have to provide him a good shop in which he could buy the parts. I need to provide him the references before his departure to CA. He will contact the shop once on the US ground and provide all required details (shippung address, credit card, ...)
Hope I will find one.
Any advices?
Thanks

Dylan

Re: Reputable shop for a business

As soon as you said overseas and container, alarms and redflags went off everywhere. Lots of scams that way. Once it leaves the USA, it's pretty much impossible to recover anything. Even if you use a credit card. Cash will probably be you only way and a bank check will have to clear first.
I sold a car on ebay to someone in Scotland and he sent a "certified bank check" took 2 weeks of the bank investigating to find it a forgery. The $7 was money well spent to avoid a $4,000 loss from my bank account. The bank even said it looked good and put the money in my account.
That being said there is several in the LA area that will take care of you and the docks are right there in San Pedro.

The problem is that it's not a scam... I trust 150% in my friend, he brought me the C6 trans, boss block, etc... without any issue. He takes care himself of the container, no issue at all with him.

But I can't find somebody who can help me.

I could use my credit card and put the docks address in Gardena but it happens when I'm going to NYC next month for the Happy New Year and I need my VISA card for shopping otherwise my wife will be pissed off....

I just need references to give to my friend and he will order himself when he will be in US and provide a credit card so I don't see why a redflag...

Thanks to all!

I just spoke to Brian from ADPerformance and he put an option for me on the parts! Never seen a man like him!

$1989 shipped to CA for a crank, heads and flexplate, very nice price!
