Easy one of the day.. Go down to your Ram/Dodge dealer with your credit card if you want the MOPAR performance crate engine. Around $5800.00 last time I looked. If not the MOPAR version you can go the Stephens Performance and order a " over the counter version".

Ramfam: did your dad notice any power difference or fuel mpg difference with the rebuild versus his old and Wvcool do u by chance know the difference between the mopar one vs the over the counter one. I know the mopar will come with a warranty but I've found a couple rebuild places with a 70,000 warranty and another place had a 100,000 I thought those were pretty good for rebuilds

The power difference was noticed. Gas mileage was the same. I think they do ship. Im not sure though. My brother had the motor install ed. The stock one blew 1/3 main bearing at 109,000.

Of course the stock engine was a dog from day one. Always made noise, use d oil, leaked oil.

But looking at it if you can find a good motor rebuld with 100,000 mile warrenty go for it. Long block rebuild?

I think in my opinion you can do better with one of the dedicated MOPAR engine shops if you are going rebuild. The main advantage to the MOPAR crate engine is it is all new parts top to bottom. Plus you are getting the last and the best of the MOPAR tech. heads and soda filled valves. JMO.
