    Crate vs. Rebuild?

    I was wondering of which would be the best answer for the money? Willing to give a finger just not a arm most likely I will go with a crate. Anyone have any good links for a crate engine?Theres nothing wrong with the engine just high mileage. Any help would be awesome..

    How much do you want to spend and do you want to do any of the work yourself?

    For $2,802.70 from Cherry Hill Triplex you can get a brand new OEM shortblock.

    If you want to send in your block you can get a Stage 1-4 shortblock: http://www.pricematchedparts.com/cat...ks-1279-1.html.

    You can also hit up Ray Pampena for his built shortblocks.

    I'm pretty sure Ray has his built blocks going for like $3500. It's almost a no brainer at that price. Don't quote me though because his prices may have changed.

    Here's a list of the built blocks Ray sells: http://www.ipsmotorsports.net/index...._3550_986_3474 Scott Merkel builds them for IPS and Ray. I have the Stage 4 motor.
