you may try getting a RcModler magazine or something and check out the websites in adds. Half the magazine is full of adds and places to order from. You would be suprised how prices vary.

I've always liked www.hobbypeople.net for engine prices and shipping.

As stated, I have also used RC modeler and called some of the ads there. There is one called Dougs that beat everyone else the when I bought my Saito 180. He was about $25 cheaper than anyone else on it. It pays to spend the time to call a few of them.

I happen to like Quantum models at
www.quantummodels.com

You do need to shop around though, it's not uncommon to find store A has a better price on one thing, while store B has a better price on something else. And, of course, there is shipping costs and tax.
