Oh dang it you had me all cranked up and you left me all worked up without the cost in $$$ bones.
I’m well aware of how costs run up fast in these trucks. I got a $7,600.00 bill three weeks after got my truck home. That was only for full heads rebuilt o-ringed with all the updates o-rings for injectors. Turbo rebuilt ARP 625 fasteners BPD Waterpump & EGR Cooler that later was upgraded to a low temp model with some tig work. Hoses belt Etc. The block was not touched was all HPO system upgrades decked o-ringed etc. The shop called the work Bullet Proofing by Nor-Cal Automotive and gave a lifetime warranty to original owner of truck when done. I had probably $2-$3,000 on top of that in DC 275XP 2/0 cable upgrade IPR setup 4” SS exhaust and more then I want to think about.
I’m going to take a stab at it and say $15,000.00 to get a full on performance engine in your pickup. Which is pretty reasonable when the trucks in great condition. A fraction of the cost of a new 6.7 F250 that’s ugly as a red headed step sister.

What's wrong with your engine?
Year of truck?

F350R The Blackwater engine I had lasted about 40k miles if that says anything. Lots of blow by from day one and blue smoke and finally bit the dust.
I have an Asheville now with about 75k on it with no problems.
