info needed NZ

Postby monaro308 » Fri Apr 24, 2009 7:11 pm

Hey all,can anyone over in New Zealand way tell me if an engine importer or a private importer
named ....Jericoraceparts a legit business/importer?
His name is .....darryl bennett in Papakura.
I'm thinking about importing an LS2....BUT....i want to check if anyone in NZ has heard of him.
He said that he would be happy to take 1/2 payment and then the balance on delivery.
Thats good for him as i would be out of luck and money if its crap.
I've googled the name and he has posted on a couple of Ford sites selling engines and trans.

So....what would the delcohackers do in my situation?
I have his address and phone # bank account details etc ...but i can't ring O/S on my landline.
Do i take a punt or give it a miss?
thanks... :)

Hey delco, yeah LS2's are available here at araound $4-5 grand engine alone.
He is selling engine and trans combos for around $3000. landed here in oz.
I remember a couple of years ago someone @ GM ordered say ....30 engines+trans,but instead of 30 on the order it had 300 (these are approx numbers) so they were stuck with the total amount.
These were available at Holden dealers to buy for around $4grand with trans.
Of course wreckers and engine dealers got wind of this and bought most of the remaining engines and seperated the engine and trans and selling the engines alone for $4g.

I'm in no hurry but if that offer is there and he's legit....it's something i wouldn't mind updating in the coupe.
I always get itchy fingers over the cold upcoming winters...... :lol: :lol:

I was thinking about doing a 355 stroker down the track...Delcoed ofcourse!!

Any sign of the LSU and bits arriving for you yet?

cheers!!
