Has anyone used one of their ready to go balanced rotating assemblies?
Any worries about having the block machined locally and then dropping in their kit?

Any cost benefit over buying the parts separately and then having it all balanced and machined?

I installed a butler stroker kit. Egale crank and rods. Comes with balance work sheet.
I would spend the money again.
Turned out good. I did end up using the one piece pan gasket and a rope rear seal. This was before the one piece rear main was available.
Steve c had a problem once, but if I recall, Butler made it good.
U might save one or two dollars piece meaning a kit together. But a proven combo from a reputable company will give u piece of mind.

Make sure your machine shop has built a few pontiacs.

My situation with Butler was a bad factory block not parts purchased. He offered a refund but instead I took credit toward parts.
