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.

Went shopping for some new trucks today, can get a 2012 fully loaded laramie megacab for 55k. I'm so mad at my ford right now, We're hoping we can just get away with changing out a sensor and maybe a bad hpop but still thats a couple k
