Asheville or Performance Machine?

I'm shopping for a Reman 6.0 Long Block.

Asheville & Performance Machine both look like pretty good options. Any views or comments on how to choose between them?

PM&M, from what I have seen here, is having a hard time getting engines out their door.

SUBSCRIBED!!

I'm in the same boat. So many quality options but what may set one apart from the rest. I personally am looking for a shop that checks and address every inch of the engine.

Drive it like you stole it, Or I will.

**ATTENTION SCREEN HOGS
If your signature block picture is bigger than most peoples post, maybe it's time to fix it. I suggest you tape a photo of your truck to your computer screen, then it only screws up your view.

Until I read NYC's post I had heard only good things about both. Around here we use Jasper Engine a lot and Continental Engine. Personally I use a local shop that I have used for 30 yrs. but thats just me I like to be able to look someone in the eye should I have any complaint.

Just would like to recommend Blackwater out of Virginia. 9000 miles since install and this thing runs and sounds like a 6.0 should. Really a smooth running assy. And they supplied a spec sheet. Tuscany installed it for me and he too was impressed on how smooth and quiet it runs. I would buy again from them if I needed another engine in the future. JMHO

X2. From what I've read. And Gearhead2012 on here does all the head machining on the 6.0's. I've bought parts from him. He definitely knows his stuff. Prices are attractive too.

He has wrote some of the 6.0 stickies IIRC.

Glad you posted about it. It is always best to know of any problem with a vendor, even one you may have used for years.
