I guess it depends on what your after..
What is the reason you are getting the whole long block replaced?
Can you have someone fully rebuild yours instead?

Sounds pretty expensive to me considering most trucks with 7.3's dont cost that much LOL.

Its a reman long block no turbo no starter alternator etc...and no that does not include another 1900.00 in labor...7250.00 is for the engine alone. Started with one bad injector about a week ago had the injector replaced along with the injector gaskets and IDM...lasted a day before it started knocking and blowing white smoke bad...I had it towed to this new shop, first thought was 4 more injectors, 2nd thought was compression check...found 2 and 3 hole with NO compression (zero), so we're at replacing engine.

If it was me I would find a used motor on craigslist and swap, or have the engine rebuilt by someone else. It would probably be cheaper to have the truck transported to bill Hewitt @ powerstrokehelp lol.

Nope, I would tow it home and think about it more. You can always have it towed back to the shop and have them do the work later on. I would really want to think about this for a while, that is a crap load of money.

Think about it. For 7k + 2k labor. For that you can get a beater car to drive around in the mean time and do the work yourself, and STILL be under 9k. Then sell the beater car when you're done

That they were going after four injectors before they decided it needs an engine scares me.

Sounds high to me. You can get a spare 7.3 truck and swap the motor from one to the other and STILL be cheaper. Might be able to find someone with a beat to crap body and just yank the motor.

That price is too high.

I'd search around on google and what not and see what you can come up with.
