buying parts in US

Hi fellow US Jeepers,
I'm from Poland (this is kind of important in this story, I think).

I've got 2005 WH 5.7; Engine died - exhaust valves (cylinders 2 and 3) got loose, burned pistons to the point, that piston rings tried to run away from engine via exhaust ports.
Instead of just buying a "new" one or simply rebuild it with stock part I wanted to build 39x stroker w/ aftermarker camshaft and this is where my problems started.
I managed to buy parts for tranny almost without problems, but when it came to buy engine parts I hit the wall. Of course I could buy some parts on ebay (and I tried from AMS racing), but things are a little complex here and I need some help/support, which sellers there don't want to provide (simply don't answer any questions)
I also tried few shops directly - I phoned them, everything fine during a call, just send an email... and then poof, gone missing.

So, maybe you guys can help me out here: I need a credible, trustworthy shop/person that will help me with choosing right parts (I know what I want, I'm simply not sure if all this will work for me the way I want): stroker kit, camshaft+valves accessories + ... whatever else is needed/mandatory and if my budget will still handle - "nice to have" too. Then will buy them for me (I will send down payment) - this is for two reasons at least: to check if quantities are ok, nothing is damaged, etc. and second: for unknown reason for me shops are freaking out when I try to buy anything; I assume if US shop buys from US shop that won't happen. Then ship it to forwarder's warehouse (still in the US, no worries - transport to Poland, it's my headache). All this of course not for free - either separate fee or margin on parts

Can anyone help me?

PS. apologies if my English isn't really English.

Is that what they told you over the phone?

Did you ask for advice about an alternate source?
