Default new engine advice

Hey guys, new to the forum here. I'm Rich. Anyways I have a 2001 Ram 4x4 with the 5.9. Ive had this truck for a while now and recently I've had several issues. First it was drinking oil like crazy so i had the manifold gasket done. $840. Then the oil pump went while i was on vacation. i had no choice so i had to pay some shady ass shop replace that....supposedly. Once that was supposedly fixed I drove my truck 2 blocks and it died on me. Got it back to the shop only to find out that supposedly the fuelpump module went bad. They told me i could drive it anyway even though it woukdnt idle and still showed no oil pressure. They said the sending unit was clogged. I didnt even make it 10 miles and the engine sized up. I'm about to sue the shop since it was their fault. Anyways I now need. new engine. I'm thinking about just getting a replacment crate, but I would like to drop something in there with a little more power. Any ideas or links. Thanks
