    I was asking a couple days ago about a vortec head swap and making sure I had all the parts, but adding up costs and fixing some other things it'll be like $1400 all said and done. I was looking around and stumbled upon this engine.

    What I figured, why not buy this for a little more and swap over useable parts and have a brand new engine for about $1900. http://www.crateenginedepot.com/store/350-Crate-Engine-290-HP-HO-12499529-P824C53.aspx


    My engine has 90,000 miles and I would have a new top end but an old worn bottom end.
    What do you all think?
    I am on a budget, but my engine is using plenty of oil and smoking more and more. Plus I got a pinging noise on the passenger side of the engine. Only I cannot pin point what it is.

    Check this place out. http://www.rebuiltautoengines.com/ you might find what you need. They have alot of sister sites I believe, and there is also places with web sites similar to there’s but if you pay attention everything is a hundred dollars more. I believe this site may be the original place. Hope this helps!
