Places to go in the U.S. to buy engine gear

Ok guys, I am booking a trip to the states late april, and may next year to source all the bits i need for my new engine and am looking for suggestions for suppliers to look at. I am looking for a dart 351 block, trick flow r series heads, 427 stroker kit, and if i can find a decent inlet manifold, that too.
I will be in Arizona for the Talladega round of the Nascars, but that is about the only destination that I am definatly sure of, other than Detroit, to tour the Rouge plant, and to go through the Henry Ford Museum, so please, suggest away.

Re: Places to go in the U.S. to buy engine gear

Thanks for your input EB, some great places there, and could well spend some $$$$ there. Dodge, is there a listing of swap meets somewhere, they could be really good for finding some good bits......

Re: Places to go in the U.S. to buy engine gear

Guys, while searching for swap meets, I have come across the "World Ford Challenge" and am considering moving my trip back by a few weeks to take in this excellent event. Would anybody else here be interested in attending, I will find all the information, and post it here, but at www.worldfordchallenge.com you can get a great idea of what it is about.
Watch this space, and let me know if anyone is interested, and I will see if we could get a group discount on airfares etc.

Cheers,

Matt
