How much for a reman long block 7.3 ?

Hi,

What is a reasonable exchange price for a reman long block for the powerstroke 7.3? I have a blown motor and am shopping around for a reman long block - and prices are all over the place..
Are there any differences I should look for?

Here's a few

PROMAR long block - 3 yr unlimited warranty - 5K
Promar Precision Engines

Roadmaster rebuilt long block - 12 months unlimited miles - 4.2K
Ford Rebuilt Engine List

Precision engine rebuilders long block - 12 months unlimited miles - 3.6k
Ford, Lincoln, & Mercury Engines

South houston engine rebuilders long block - 18 months/? - 3k
Products

Any suggestions? Are any of these vendors known nationally?

-Ram

Are you suggesting I go for the Ford remanufactured long block?
