    When I bought a rebuild kit from them in 1999, and again in 2004, neither time did they send an itemized list of parts with a price attached. That was a little underhanded...
    Back when I purchased my first kit, I ordered the top-of -the -line timing chain and gear set. At least that's what I paid for. I didn't realize until much later they had sent the cheaper sets.
    In 2004, with the second kit, I was missing a set of rings for one of the cylinders, and they didn't want to credit that screw-up. Eventually they did, but I was done with them....
    TA Performance has been good to me and let's say I have purchased quite a bit from them!

    I was really needing to find out about the oil pan thing more than anything else. I know of a new one but I was trying to see what all came in the deepened oil pan as the kit.

    I know Jim developed the girdled pan, but did Poston offer a deep sheet metal pan too?
