It all depends on what you are wanting to spend, but that's how it goes with about everything. I have a friend that put a Black Mamba 7.3 in his for around 6k and he loves it! For 6k who wouldn't? lol

Buy used and rebuild it. It's not that hard. Just pay attention to torque specs. You can get a rebuild kit for pretty cheap

You popped a PMR motor with hybrid injectors... big deal...

Throw a good used motor in there and drive it another 100k.

You don't need upgrades rods for a set of 238 hybrids. Find a good used forged rod motor and drive on. Swap all your stuff over and be done in a weekend.

Why rebuild it? Clean it up, swap stuff and stick it back in. No reason in the world to rebuild a properly built motor just to say you did...
