Motor Blown/Broke something - new engine suggestion
The idiot techs (yes 2 different techs with 2 separate screw ups) at my normal lube shop screwed me. One didnt fully tighten the oil pan plug and the other screwed around with with my coolant.
needless to say, my engine seized about 50 miles down the road....and I walk away with a 15,000 dollar check to keep my mouth shut.
So....I need replacement suggestions.
I guess I should let you know that I run a hotshot outfit.....normal load of about 10k pounds on a 38 foot gooseneck trailer weighing about 7k pounds.
Whats up with Black Mamba Engines? I keep hearing all kinds of good things about them. Im a nazi when it comes to general maintenance. Oil changes every 5k miles, fuel filters every 20k. I make sure my moneymaker is well taken care of.
I dont know much about upgraded performance...and it would sure be sweet to be able to haul over the 26,000 pound (or so) max tow rating that ford gave me.
If I wanted to stay within a 10k budget (to get everything done.....new engine, installed, with warranty) what would you guys recommend?
