I don't know how much of a discount I actually get (I have an account), but I bought a set of custom dished AutoTec pistons a few months ago. With rings and shipping, they were MUCH less than $1,000!

Get an XS Power AGM battery. Their S925 or D925 is rather tiny, light (24#), and WAY more powerful than you'd expect. No worries about hydrogen gas build up either, since it is an AGM style.
