Best place for mods?

I've been searching everywhere for a decent website or store that sells mods for the lotus engine, some have the parts I'm looking for but to me seem to be overpriced, I want to upgrade my valve springs and cams because I've heard this specific engine revs so high the valves start to float with the stock valve springs. Any insight or Info will be great, thanks

With all due respect to dallasreed and his awesome, freakish, monster horsepower Elige, MonkeyWrench has a very questionable reputation here. Phil/BOE (and partner BlackWatch Racing) is the complete opposite, and I've never seen a negative post about them.

I haven't had any issues with monkeywrenchracing. My experience with them is only ordering parts and to that end they have always been competitively priced, fast and accurate. I've bought an assembled short block, head, valvetrain parts, among other things. I would not hesitate to use them as a source for parts. I have not had them to a major project on my vehicle, however, which I have read of at least one account of that being a nightmare situation.

Thanks for the feedback I'll check all these sites out as soon as I get a break from my work schedule.
