Re: Year One 350 Crate Engine
I bought my GM performance crate 350 from Summit Racing for less than GM was selling the same engine.Dont know how this could happen and the local GM dealer I was gonna buy it from didnt know how they could sell the same GM motor for cheaper than he could.Might be some even better deals in the wake of the slow down in the economy...
It's commonplace for products to be sold cheaper by distributors than from the original company who makes them. At least, this is true in most other industries. It's easier for a company to sell at big discounts to high volume distributors, and in some cases, the OEM makes it cost prohibitive to buy it from them on purpose. In other words, when you bought the crate from Summit, it's as good as buying it from GM...in GM's eyes.
