need resonably priced rebuild kit

Hi everyone, looking for info on a resonably priced rebuild kit for my 01 7.3. Am pretty sure I have at least two bent rods due to hydro lock when I had a local mechanic replace injectors.

He replaced them, went to pick truck up, smokes like crazy and has big power loss. I insisted he replace the o-rings on the injectors , he did, still smokes and looses power.

Upon inspection by a quailfied mechanic, who showed me the plugs that need to be removed to drain oil off the head prior to removing injectors, it was apparent they had not been removed. I believe he let that oil into the cylinder and put the injector in, started the truck or forced it to start and bent rods in each bank.

I wasn't having trouble or any kind of serious troble prior to this, ran a little rough, maybe idleled rough, nothing bad, since this deal won't run hardly at all, smokes terrible, so on.

So I am feeling like I need to tear it down and rebuild, wonder where I can find a decently priced rebuild kit. I will have a local machine shop do the block and heads.

If anybody has any other ideas about my problem I am open, I would really like to be wrong and have a simple fix here. Appreciate any help in advance.
