Thanks for the heads up. Perfect timing. Tossing up between a AOD non-electronic or a C6 complete package for the f100 to go behind the 347 I took out of the mustang. Any suggestions on which box and rear ratio.

Unfortunately only applies to their EBay store. They don't have all their parts available through there. I was looking for a Edelbrock 2750 Performer and it's not available. Bugger.

Yeah I feel like they're pretty smart with what they put up on their ebay store though. Most likely the products they don't make much money on stay off their ebay store

Iíve noticed an increasing amount of their eBay listings are for their house branded Proflow items.

I had already called and they would not apply the discount direct from the shop. A real shame because I'm looking at a manifold, cam, lifters and rockers. Will just have to wait for an email with the store offering the discount. I'm not in a hurry.

Does anyone know where to buy an AOD non electronic or a good 3 spd box to suit a 347. Don't want something that has to be rebuilt , just throw straight in with stally. Cheers

Actually bought and paid for something from their Ebay store once, only to have my order cancelled with no explanation.  Rang up to find out what was going on only to be told "we can't find it in the warehouse".

Not very professional IMHO.

If you have decent stock control systems, light fingers get chopped off quickly.

Like Dwayne said.....their ebay store is stocked with stuff no one is interested in. Than again if you call them they will beat Rocket's price. I could'nt be bothered with either of them unless I need something in a hurry. I am one of Summit's favourite customers.

Do you know if Summit has been affected by the GST thing? How are they with postage costs?

Postage is pretty good from summit, go for the cheapest option. Don't ever choose to pick it up from a local shipping depot, as you'll get slugged with extra duties.

If you put things in the shopping cart, it will estimate shipping and give you half a dozen options.

Sometimes their ebay site has very cheap postage too.

Not in my experience: e.g. $40 USD to ship a speedo cable by the cheapest method, $30 USD for a trap door prop rod, etc.  There was a time a year or two ago when they introduced a cheap international shipping policy, but only lasted a month or so before they went back to their old pricing.

I Always buy through Summits eBay store, far cheaper postage. For example Iíve had heads shipped here for $150 and a radiator for $90.

:agree: If they can do it through their eBay store, then why not direct?  As with VPW, Summit don't put a lot of their stuff up on eBay.
