long block options?

Looking into buying a long block. What is your thoughts on this? My truck is an 03. Bought it used and havn't even put 1000 miles on it. I took it in the shop and they believe a rod is broke.

I really like the idea of starting fresh with a new motor. I have a new turbo allready. The new motor will be studded with new studs and deleted with my delete that is on now. Also have a new ipr valve and icp sensor. Anything else i should get on the list? I am on a budget and looking for a reliable truck.

Im leaning toward this

I read the build sheet and it seems very impressive. I would research the company and at least call a few fellas that have bought a rebuilt engine from them and get their opinions on their experience with the company.

Bottom line is research the history and reputation of the builders. If they are building good engines then it seems a good deal. It is a lot of money and my experience is you usually get what you pay for from reputable companys.

Best of luck with it, I know how it feels to have a broke truck!

I havnt really looked into them to far. I found on ebay where they are selling some longblocks and they have a good rating. Thats about all i came up with so far. Im going to call them to get a feel for them and to make sure they use oem head gaskets as well. lol

Im beside myself right now with my truck. I have had it for 2 months and its been broke for most of the time! Thats the main reason i just want a new motor. I want to start fresh and know what i have.

I found them awhile ago and couldn't really come up with much. Hopefully someone can chime in eventually.
