Performance Automotive Warehouse

Has anyone had any experience with PAW? More specific their 552" BBF long block kit?? I have never used them but it looks like a good deal...too good a price to be true????

I have bought shelf parts from them but would NEVER buy anything they machined. PAW is 30 min. from me. :roll:

I had issues in the 80' with machined stuff from them, Purchased a set of 351C rods and one was Twisted and Bent, Called them to take care of it they told me it was my Problem and that nothing would leave their shop that way.............. Never purchased anything from them since then. :roll:

PAW!!! welcome to the 80's!!! they are nothing compared to the newer faster smarter mail order joints. believe it or not Doug Herbert has an awesome warehouse with great stuff. shipping isnt as fast as Jegs but he has a great line of parts.

My boss used to work for PAW and he said the machine shop was a mess. Buddy of mine bought a 460 and had to send the crank and rods back. But, on a side note, his 388 chevy bolted together just fine.

So is Lem, and pretty darn fast about getting you what you specifically need at a comparable or better price than Jegs or Summit. Plus you can't beat the one on one to a bunch of guys that really know their stuff when it comes to Fords. Lem and Shawn have gotten me everything I have ever asked for. :lol: 8)

Yep: I agree with Schmitty, I don't want to sound like a kiss *** but it is so much easier calling Shawn and having it delivered. Especially now with gas prices.

Another Azz kiss for Lem :shock:
Always answers the phone,
Delivers what he promises,
Prices are excellent.

Service is what wins me over.
