mOROTBREATH is starting off with a positive reputation.
Are they that much at NAPA? I am only going to get a good quality kit, even if it costs a little bit more.

Like I asked above, are theye any hi-po, or at least lighter weight things you can get that would work in one of these old 223's(forged alum pistons, better bearings, etc..)?

I didn't end up buying new pistons but I took my list to NAPA and they told me what they could get and what it would cost. I ended up getting a few things thru them but the rest as a result of Ebay. Not everything was listed but I ran into a place called Northern Auto Parts and they had everything I wanted at a very reasonable price. You can look them up on line or the toll free is 800-831-0884. If you can be patient (keyword), you should not be anywhere near $1200!
