6.4l Crate Engine

I have a 2008 f250 Job1 CC SWB KR 3.73. I have the Spartan Phalanx with the AFE Pro Guard 7 Intake.

I am in need of my third engine and was looking at the long block from Performance Machine MFG.

I have read many post about different parts from PMM but I have not found any posts about their engines.

Does anyone have any knowledge on the engines PMM provides or would anyone recommend a long block from another vendor?

Any and all responses about 6.4l crate engines are welcome.

I would not buy anything from them again. However I would look into Elite diesel if I was in your shoes.

Great question. Here is the answer:

JUL 2007 bought the truck new from a dealership in GA - 12 miles on it - Engine 1

JAN 2010 was in Sacramento, CA had front cover cavitation - 102K on it - Engine 2 (Ford paid half after the turbos were replaced a month earlier from clumpy oil)

JUN 2012 back home in Columbia, SC low compression, busted block - 205K on it - I now need Engine 3. Just got the money to buy the block. Also in JAN 2012 had to replace the transmission.

Is there anyway to know if you have front cover cavitation without taking it apart? Also is it easy to check compression?

Best way is to send an oil analysis to blackstone labs and see if there is coolant in the oil.
