Get in touch with BLK PWERSTROKE. He is selling a 7.3 motor and a tranny. You could compare a rebuild with the price of his... Just a thought...

ive beenn doing stock engine overhauls for around 2500 to 2800 dollars , thats rings bearings , oil pump if needed , all gaskets and seals ,injectors o-rings , and valve job

trans ive been getting done just back to stock for around 1500, with converter

that is unless someone wants better than stock parts , then it goes up from there

yeah , 25 hours for overhaul at 60 dollars an hour , leaves 1000.00 + dollars to buy parts , parts arent that expensive sometimes , depends on what it needs, i can do it in 12-15 hours so , as long as i can make good time , than i cant lose
