I installed one 6.0 from them that the customer brought. No issues. Also know of several other shops that have installed a number of their 6.0 and 6.4 motors with no issues. I donít know of any that have used their 7.3 tho.

The thing is there are so many cases of poor results on rebuilt engines that some folks see it as less risky to go used!

Well thatís the route I took. I picked up a running engine this weekend, it had an adrenaline, some other new parts like valve cover gaskets. 350-400 on cylinder compression. This leaves room for a new clutch, any recommendations? It has a luk in it now. It feels good but has slipped some pulling heavy.

I will also consider doing studs pushrods and springs. I will be installing my injectors, turbo, Efuel, etc.
