They're not all that hard to find cheap. I bought a running 305 for 100 bucks off craigslist not too long ago.

i didnt prev owner cut it but i like it sure make it easy to pull motor trans at the same time im waiting on finding a job to start working on this thing again as soon as i find motor trans ill start updating more and more

If you build the engine correct the first time who cares how easy it is to pull. I have a stock core support and a small block in my truck and I can still pull my engine pretty easy if needed. I dont understand why everyone cuts the core support, it is needed for a reason.

It's like everything, depends on the situation. In my case, after I grenaded the 3rd 700R4, the core support got cut. It was either that or the crossmember...

500+hp does that sometimes. The 700r4 isn't known for its strength.
