Long Block vs Crate Engine

Good morning all,

So my truck recently took a sh** and it was caused from wearing on the roller/ cam and expansion and a crack in both my heads (about .006"). (see attached) So im in a dilemma of whether I should buy a new crate or turn key motor or just do a "long block" and transfer my parts from my old motor. I'm having the work done by a mechanic, i am not doing the work myself. Orrrr should i have them go through strip and rebuild the current motor I have. Keeping in mind it will more than likely be needing a flushed oil pan,a hot plunge, new oil pump, front over, rod bearings, camshaft, roller/lifters, crankshaft... Lord only knows what else.

What are your guys opinions?

Thanks in advance

I would look at an Ashville long block

long blocks are easier to get warranty than a short and your heads and assembly

Yeah im not 100% what happened the truck just wouldn't start one day, and i brought it in, but i was out of town when the mechanic called with a diagnostic so im not sure how truthful he was. but on another note, I would say it was impacted somehow and yes the bearing split.

I am with zmann. I have a Asheville .20 over with a stage II cam studs KC stage II turbo BPD oil cooler and 7.3 fan clutch. It's a very strong running motor. Asheville will treat you right and stand behind their product.

NOS? Like Nitrous Oxidized? You can order new models from FORD im fairly certain. But im just trying to find the best route, so a reman is not a voided option by any means.
