Default Where to get good 306 short block?

Where would be a good place to order a 306 short block? I like to take my time putting an engine together while still diving my car. I know what heads and intake I want. But I want a good short block for a daily driver and lots of torque. Also in a year or two I will install a Kenny Bell supercharger.

PS After the install of the new engine what would be a good price for an engine with 120 to 130 thousand miles on it? ( the engine will be going in the car listed below)

Thanks
Mark

are you wanting a 306 with pistons, etc, already assembled, or do you want the rebuild kit (pistons,etc) while you gut the 302?

I want a short block not the Kit. I want to just bolt heads, rocker, push rod, cam and intake. and sell my old engine.

I would call DSS for the best short blocks. They are very reasonable in price also. We have had very good luck with their engines and they will stand behind their work.

This guy is great, I bought my 347 short block from him. Very professional. He has the best prices on the web. The best part is free shipping!
