    LQ4 for an Aussie icon

    Hi, haven't been on this site for a while but I have a request, I'm looking for a good used but complete LQ4 vortec truck engine. I have an Aussie contact that can ship out of Compton but my problem is finding a reputable wrecking yard or second hand engine dealer that can hook me up. Does anybody on here have any contacts in the California area? I'm looking for something in reasonable condition to piece together a turbo combo to put in my 72 HQ Holden (Aussie icon) I will be doing a full build on this engine with forged rotating assy and most probably LS3 heads. I know there must be hundreds of yards all over California with heaps of Vortec truck engines but I've had no luck emailing random businesses who either don't get back to me or want ridiculous money for something they won't send pics of. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanx MICK.

    The engine is easy but the shipping, fee's, taxes, paperwork, duties and other crap is going to be a bitch. Very best of luck to you, send some pics when you have it done.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555

    For what you want done, I'd just talk with Texas Speed & Performance. They have some great deals on motors and packaged exactly the way you want. Shipping may be an issue but I'm sure they can work something out.

    In the long run this may be the easiest and cheapest route for you.

    Thanx guys, I got the shipping bit covered, a mate here in Aus brings over complete cars and is in the US every 8-10 weeks so shipping is no problem, as for the build i got that covered, I'am a qualified diesel fitter/engine builder, all I really need is someone around the California area to supply a good useable engine that I can trust. I thought there would be hundreds..maybe not ay?

    Texas and Oklahoma are hevy truck states. Better luck there, Calli is borderline Communist when it comes to emmissions & trucks.
