I'm looking to get in contact for anyone that works for TA Performance. The rod bearings in my 430 are getting worse by the day so I planned to build up my 455 I have on the stand over these 3 weeks I have off for winter break (I'm a college student). That way I can road trip the car back with a fresh engine in it. I have a list of $5500 in parts I need to order from TA. I would've ordered them sooner but I needed to finish the machine work on the block so I knew for sure what overbore we were going to be able to get away with. Anyway, I sent an email this morning and tried calling. I didn't expect them to be in on Christmas eve, Christmas day, or even the day after that but I was hoping to get someone by Thursday or Friday so I could order these parts and get them here ASAP. However, when listening to their automated voice message today it said they weren't going to be back until January 7th which is an entire two weeks from today! That would leave me with around 5 days to order the parts, get them shipped to me, and assemble my engine (accounting for 2 days to travel). There is simply no way it can get done in that short of a time. I'm praying I can get someone that works there to make a special exception and process the order for me. If I don't get the engine done over this break I don't even know when else I'm going to have enough time to complete this motor and I'll have to park the car for the foreseeable future. I was already crunching the timing by assuming I could assemble the entire engine in 3 weeks but having the biggest BBB vendor close for 2 weeks straight is turning the project from difficult to physically impossible!
