Reman's? Blackwater, Asheville, etc???
Alright guys. I know this has been beat worse than a dead horse but who to go with for a new long block? I had pretty much settled on using Blackwater but after a Google search I am beginning to rethink that. It seems some folks have received some motors with over sized pistions bored .40 over that they never asked for. Now everything I read online I take with a grain of salt and and I know that no builder is going to have a spotless reputation. Most of the comments I have seen were positive. I have talked with Gearhead2012 who put me at ease with his knowledge about the Ford 6.0 liter. But I also want to know about these other rebuilders. What I really am looking for is an engine that can be dropped in, unless I can find an engine rebuilder who knows what they are doing. I also have seen some stuff online about Asheville Engines, does anyone know anything about them or how their motors hold up? Who else is out there? Basically I'm hoping to only have to do this once and get it right the first time. Any help or comments would be nice guys. Thanks.
