    Glad to see you are giving it another chance! At least with a Built motor vs a crate motor it should hold together for a LOT longer!

    My thoughts exactly... perfect opportunity on free labor :biggrin:

    Best believe I've been crunching the numbers... I have enough for a cam, but the supporting mods are what's holding me back. With a cam I need to get a tune, then hardened push rods, springs capable of the bigger cam... basically the deluxe package from PCMofNC... then a stall and LT headers... too deep for my pockets... not to mention it would void my 100k mile warranty on the crate motor...but I'm trying to figure things out lol...

    Well not giving it a chance persay, I just want the damn thing fixed... nobody wants a truck without a motor and the dealer will give me more with a working motor :rotfl:

    I am going to give you the greatest suggestion of ALL TIME. Hes replacing bearings the engine has to come out..... For your health order the PCM oil pickup relocation RIGHT NOW!

    My apologies if I missed something but would this not be the ideal time to bore that crate? Not cheap by any means but I would've swore it off had I been in your shoes. 427?

    He doesn't wanna void the warranty just incase (knock on wood) something goes wrong again
    After the warranty it's a different story IF he keeps it

    Still, not nearly as easy as handing this guy a box. be nice to do it yourself but he will have an easier advantage there is not much to screw up really only worry is the O-Ring Seal at the pump.But as you stated already the builder is credible.

    Man this sucks that you are going through this again Juan. At least it being rebuilt it should be a much stronger motor. You being able to see it being built up should also help you rest easier.

    Now don't baby this thing!

    This would be the perfect time to do all that, add a cam, heads, etc.... BUT.... this is all on the dealers dime. My crate motor has a 100k mile warranty on it and since we agreed that I will not wait 6 months for a new crate motor, off to the speed shop it goes to be rebuilt. If I had the extra cash, I'd be all over stroking/forging this motor, but A) it will void the warranty and B) I just don't have the funds

    :iagree:

    Touché

    Fingers crossed :thumbsup:

    Yep, get the internals built right this time. :biggrin:

    Um...no. Not a good choice.

    This would be a MUCH better choice than a LS7 cam.

    Have him use a C6 Vette pan and be done with it. All factory GM parts except for the AC bracket (talk to Joe at LC32)!
