Need new motor help!

So about a week ago while driving home I came to a stop sign and my truck started shaking like crazy. Drover her 400 yds home shut her off and got it towed to the shop. Got a call the next day needs an injector no problem. Get a call next day you need three more, no problem, do it. Get a call the next day I need a motor, there is a dent in the piston. Does anyone have any good ideas on where to find rebuilt ones or used ones? I've been looking and found a place called black water engines, anyone used them or heard of them? I appreciate any help.

I installed a Blackwater long block in my 05 about 7 months ago after finding 2 cracked cylinders. I ordered mine with the ARP studs and did all of the ford update parts while installing it (new oil cooler, STC, Turbo tubes, Stand pipes and dummy plugs, 6.4 banjos and blue spring). I only use the truck for hauling the camper and pulling the boat, I have done three trips and about 5,000 miles with the new motor so far and every thing is good. Before buying the long block I spoke with the owner of Black water and he really seemed to know the 6.0.
