Long block vs Complete engine swap

   Why should you buy a long block instead of a complete engine? 
   The answer is simple...for your own peace of mind.  There are so many gaskets, seals, and connections on a complete engine that it's inevitable that somebody is going to have an oil, anti freeze or fuel leak at some time after an engine installation.  
   If you purchased that complete engine from a supplier and had your local shop install it, when there's a leak the installer is going to blame the engine builder.  The engine builder's response will be that the installer did something wrong and you'll be stuck in the middle.  Who really cares who's at fault, you just want your truck fixed!!!
   When we re-manufacture a Ford Powerstroke Diesel engine in our shop, we prefer to sell the long block so your LOCAL installer can swap all of the other neccessary parts (used or new) onto your engine.  If there is a leak, you know where to go to get it fixed!
    Cost is another factor.  The additional labor involved to install all the parts on a 6.0L long block, as an example is about 6 hours for your installer.  You already own many of the parts that you need.  Manifolds, covers, wiring, etc.  Having your installer do it is cheaper than having an engine builder do the installation of those parts with parts that we would have to supply.  You can save as much as $1500-$2000 and your installer has the opportunity to make more money.
   At Asheville Engine, we have everybody's best interest in mind!  
Buy with confidence

I'm not sure that I am adding this in the correct place but I want to give Asheville Engine Rebuilders a 'shout out' for a great product and awesome service! I did a lot of research and talked, personally, to references that repeatedly buy Asheville's re-built engines. I will, gladly, be added to the list now for anyone that wants to know about them. I was concerned about sending someone a large amount of money and then hoping that they followed through with what they said. They kept me informed throughout the process and I now have about 3500 miles on my new engine. It performs well and hauls my trailer like a dream. I can't say enough good things about this company.
