Someone will have to drop it off for them and you will have to pick it up. I have shipped ///M exhausts through them and they arrived on their own pallet. It was 70 bucks I think.

I've used Forward Air as well.
Unfortunately sometimes the seller or buyer is too far from a Forward Air Depot. As is the case with Charles seller.

Fedex will ship one door to door as long as it's strapped to a pallet and has shrink wrap around it. Make sure to drain all of the fluids too.

I strap them to a pallet by passing a 1/8" cable through the motor mount points. You can buy the cable and clamps from Home Depot and you can pick up shrink wrap at Office Depot.

I bought from a guy who had it built for him . it has kit head and based gaskets, ported and polished, undercut trans. positive neutral finder is taken out. smoother shift from first to second though it will be a touch harder to find neutral now. No starter (I'll be putting one in) kit springs and kit cams (05-06 stock cams were th ekit cams for 03-04). he's giving me a bunch of other engine parts too. head and base gaskets side case gaskets and etc. I'll def be adjusting the valves when i get it.

only down side to it is it's the 600 motor and not the 636 so I'll be short on midrange and that will be peaky.

Definately find out who built it. I would still break everything down to make sure that it was done right. But then you can always throw it in and wait till it goes. But at a min, adjust the valves and do a compression test.

Finding neutral at the track is usually a bad thing. :eh:
