WHere to buy a salvaged 2000 Powerstroke engine

Well most likely i will have to buy a new engine for my truck, The mechanic says i have burned a hole in my #7 piston(which i am going to get a second opionin, make sure its not a stuck valve or something) but with the symptoms of the engine he is probably right! Anyways i found an engine on "Engine and transmission world" and i was wondering if anyone knows how reputable these guys are or if anyone knows another company to buy an engine at a fairly reasonable good price...Any input or advice would be much appreciated! Thanks and have a great day

Get a whole truck

Try copart dot com. you can buy a whole truck with a destruction title and throw away what you don't need.

Hope this helps.

Have you ever considered rebuilding? If you could get away with factory rod and main bearings(meaning no machining) your engine would be very reliable and you wouldn't have to worry about the previous history. Just a thought..

Honestly if my engine ever went to **** I would give these guys a shot.

99-02 7.3L FORD POWERSTROKE 400HP+ CRATE MOTOR -

I know it's pretty damn expensive but look what you get with it. It will save a lot of labor and aftermarket upgrades and gives a very solid foundation for future upgrades. I guess it just depends on what your plans are for the truck.

LOL... I would not touch that motor...

You can get a Factory Ford motor for about that same cost and get a 5year 100k warranty again.

That motor would not make anywhere near 400hp with a stock turbo.
