Yeah the Yella Terra is one of the companies I listed in my post. They offer the rockers and their sister company Crow Cams offers *duh* cams. Try www.google.com.au to search Australia specific sites.

Sorry if I kinda stepped on you toes by 'exposing your sources -didn't mean to, and the true credit is yours for bringing the info regarding the Ecotec V6 and Aussie 3800 to our attention.
By all means, I hope everyone continues to work with DrJay for the parts.
And thanks for the .au tip. I use the different .au, .uk, .ca, etc.. on ebay, and such all the time -just didn't on the google.

Oh no I posted the source on the thread. I encourage people to try and find more places, I want to really open the Series I market. Its just an issue with prices, people going to those two on their own might mess up the prices I negotiated. Free reign on other sources! Hopefully we can find even better prices but it might be hard. The prices I posted INCLUDE shipping which on one estimate was $170 or so.

Here'* a few places I'm looking at too:

I'd suggest waiting a couple weeks before jumping on this. First of all, we don't want to soil Jason'* deals, and he deserves this, considering the many hours he'* invested in finding this stuff.

The second reason is that there'* a behind-the-scenes effort to set us up with a single-point distributor and try to cut some overhead. Prices may be totally different within a month.

They get them from GM. They either decided to replace them with something else, or their contract expired.

Who knows, maybe GM is discontinuing Holden?

No, it'* a good thread. No delete. Just don't rush out yet. Jason (DrJay) is still working out the 'compatibilities'. Take this next couple weeks to work up your shopping lists, and let'* see what comes out of the pricing work. This whole process really hasn't started yet.

Jason needs to figure alot out still. It'* a bit overwhelming.
