Hey there @CrasherAsher
, thanks for the explanation. I am in the process of replacing/rebuilding an engine and actually got off the phone with Dave earlier as he priced out a rebuild for me.
When talking with him he kept touting his experience and time in the business. I like the idea of confidence and all, but I got a weird feeling from him. It sounds like I may be better off moving on to someone else?
Do NOT buy one of this guys Builds, simply for the fact, he probably ain't building them, as evidenced by his heat tab warranty policy. Heats tabs are common to engines, bought by huge wholesale rebuilder, then shipped off to small rinky **** shops. That;s how the shop gets a new engine, sent them to them, to replace the customers bad engine, when the rebuild customer comes back, because his newly , supposedly 'rebuilt' engine is acting up.
Exactly as happened with the Original Poster, to this thread. His problem was goign with upgraded cam and lifters, not the shops.
Get yourself a brand spanking new engine, Long BLock, from Mopar.
Warrantied by Mopar.
Pay to have the engines swapped out by a shop.
I doubt that I'd let this Arizona Rebuilds Shop add air to my tires.
