PO blew my motor, buying a BLACK MAMBA Crate

Just as the title says
The night before I was gonna install my powermaxx on my truck decided to say low oil pressure and turn off. I took my boost tube off to the inlet (pass side) of mny turbo and found etching/skoring in it. What I think hjappened was the turbo grenadad and took out my motor!! I'm choked after I already have 9grand in it!!! (head studs, gaskets, egr, injectors) and now this happened!! I narrowed down my two choices in buying just a brand new motor.
Lookin at the black mamba

The Black Mamba has been brought up on this forum before. General Consensus: It's overpriced, the builder/dealer is shady, and a better motor can be build/had for less money.

I would look more into the motor before I said it was trashed. Also just buy another 6.0 and do all the upgrades on it before you install it.

06 F-250 ccsb King Ranch, 2011 KR interior AC seats, door panels, 3" RC lift, SCT X3, WILDMAN tune, bumpers, Edge CTS, AMSOIL bypass kit, pillar gauges, ARPs, Warren 155s, egr delete, 4" exhaust...the list goes on and on
