    This.

    Ive rebuilt small engines no problem but a modern engine Im not sure Id want to touch. Nor is it probably even worth it, simply because places like Jasper exist.

    Just like how its more expensive to buy a rebuilt brake caliper, but I dont blink an eye doing so because actually rebuilding a caliper takes more time than the savings are worth.

    So... nobody really worries that there are 51 reviews for Jasper, and they got 1.5 stars on this site: https://www.consumeraffairs.com/automotive/jasper-engines-and-transmissions.html

    Makes me really think about buying their engine, there are some horror stories there.

    It's possible that those reviews are fake... but i can't think of anyone who would really directly benefit from writing so many bad reviews.

    how many times do non complaints go to that website after millions of engines sold? BBB rating A+. I'd only use a reman if my block was toast, then what are my other options?

    Dude, that and others like it are bitching websites for people to vent it the rare instance something goes to shit or feelings were hurt.

    People buy many things throughout their lives, when it works, that's what is expected and the normal reaction is to not run out and let everybody know. When you get a lemon, the normal reaction is burn the village down letting everybody know. All you have to do is look at all the one post wonders here who only join to vent, have their tirade and then leave. Where were they for years when everything was hunky dory?

    Sounds like you are already gun shy of Jasper. May want to spend the extra coin and get a MOPAR reman.

    Cost of a Mopar crate versus jasper is what? And btw, Mopar crates are the best? Seams like they did a pretty good job and fucking up both our engines Kap.

    I would have at least put some shorty headers on it.

    What about the engine builders who make the big power hemis? I follow one up in NY called EMPerformance and they post pictures of gen III hemis torn down everyday. Would having them go through your engine and replacing broken parts with updated be about the same with hopefully more reliability? I would shy from a Mopar crate engine because of the possibility of the same parts failing again if they aren’t updated?

    Screw Mopar crate engine ... They'll give me same garbage as they're putting in at the factory... So I roll the dice

    How about Extreme power engines? I couldn't find reviews on them

    Theres nothing to be learned from the second kick of a mule.

    I seriously doubt my truck engine is ever going to go bad, but if it did, I'd be looking at a Jasper real hard.

    Their pistons look like they'd stand up to boost a lot better than the OEM ones.
