    ok guys just to let you know dont buy from recon. i have gone through 3 engines am about to put a 4th in. so while im doing that i figure i should just put a rebuilt 700r4 in that i have lying around and rebuild the transfer case. i just love how doing one thing leads to having so much more to do. im not going to do the swap till i graduate college which isnt till may (thank god im done) so if anyone lives near Frederick MD and wants to help let me know i am known for putting togeather pretty good parties. Plus i really want to go do some off roading this summer i have had this blazer for almost 2 years and ive been able to drive it maybe a total of 6 months. well just wanted to vent was getting pissed.

    peace and chicken grease

    well the first one start drinking a quart of oil in about 15 miles, then the next one the threads were the harmonic balancer bolt threads in were stripped and now this one i did a cylinder leakage on it and i have 80% leakage on my 3rd aND 4TH cylinder through the intake valve.

    sounds like some poor workmanship. where are the recon motors assembled?
