Aftermarket Engine

Howdy Ya'll,

My oil pan has been leaking from the fitting for the dipstick tube for the longest time and I'm finally at wits end with it and wanted to get it fixed. Well, my repair shop i took it to, I've used them forever, told me that they would have to remove the engine to replace the oil pan so I'm thinking of getting an aftermarket long block that's built up and just replace the engine instead of just replacing the oil pan. I just wanted to get ya'lls thoughts on what I should do....

also, to get your input on where to price the aftermarket long block from that's going to be built strong, in case I want to build up the top end down the road....

thanks for ya'lls help!

Purty expensive. I think the girdle alone is over $1500. Then you have rods and pistons...

Don't take my work for it though, I really haven't looked into pricing that stuff in a long time.

It doesn't have to be that expensive. Before you go all out and decide to spend 15-20K on an engine, what power level are you shooting for?

If you're not going for the stars power wise than it makes sense, but for moderate power, it just doesn't pay off.
