Reman Motor from South Houston Engine Service???

I am in need of a 7.3. Mine lost compression in a #7 cylnder.
I have been looking and reading about remans on the Internet. I live in North Texas. I can use south Houston and drive there. save me some shipping. But, never heard if anyone Here has had any dealings with them???
Or is there a Known reputable builder in the DFW are?? Just need some help on making a choice. I have to replace what i got. And Dont care to rebuild.
Any Ideas???
Thanks Jerry

It has 237000 last winter it got to the point it wouldn't crank unless it was plugged in. And the mpg dropped to around 6 pulling a trailer and 11 empty.
