if your going to spend $5000 on a re-build......add some money to it and get a Black Momba 7.3 or even the Super Black Momba that comes out the boxwith 500hp! well worth the 8-10grand IMO

yeah i'm wondering that too. 5k grand sounds a little steep. then again maybe it doesn't. is that for a rebuild? or new motor? i've seen people charge $4000 just to replace a motor with a remanufactured one. that included the price of the motor too. so i take that back it's not that much. a diesel motor is always gonna cost more than a gas powered motor. they are known for more longetivity, and thats why diesel trucks are selling 10k grand higher than gas ones.

Your talking 5000 for a rebuild. what about 5995$ FOR 400HP and 820ftlbs of tq. You would spend a decent bit MORE than that just getting it rebuilt and then trying to hit that 400 hp mark.

For 1500 more, they install it for you. Now tell me where you can get a FRESH motor with that much power for just under6-7k for 400hp and 7-8k for 500hp with the super black momba

There is 2 guys on the org with black mombas, i wish they would chime in
