Need Some Opions on Reman 6.0

So what do you guess think about getting a reman 6.0 from ford. Is it worth it or better off going to a diesel shop and having them build a motor. I have heard bad things about the remans from ford not lasting that long.

I am too new here to have any idea but i should think a diesel performance shop that you trust, would be the better choice. I would rebuild my own for fun. But that is just me. What is wrong with your engine?

Nothing wrong with planning for the future. My plan is to get a used engine somewhere and then spend my evenings building it up. I think that would be cool.

If you have the tools and ability, that's the way to go

It would likely be cheaper and in the long run, more productive as you'll know every nut and bolt, evey performance part and every clearance in that motor and you'll know it was put together well (if done correctly).

Otherwise, I'd save my cash and take it to a trusted (performance) diesel engine builder and have it done the way you want

As for the cummins swap? There's those that apparently swear by it from what I read, and others that have made the switch from Dodge to Ford for a reason. I guess it's all about what you believe and what you want.

Either way, I like the way you think. Planning is everything.
