Looking for a new engine

I posted a thread a week or 2 ago about a bad noise i had trying to start the engine. Well just got word from dealership that i towed it to that a rod went through the block. Now trying to find options. Do i sell it as is, or do i get a replacement engine? And where would i get 1?

If a rod went through the block wouldnt you have seen the carnage on the ground? I had mine bend a piston rod but was able to have it rebuilt.

If you sell your truck as is you'll be taking a loss but if you want to divest yourself of it that is the route.

I just looked on ebay and saw a few v10 motors in the range of 8 to 10k. So that is what your looking at to replace the motor, then you have to factor in having it put in which I'd estimate another 2k+ for labor.

I have an engine for sale - fresh, zero miles. I haven't installed the cam or pistons and rods yet, so if you want to spend a little more, I can finish the build for your needs.
PM me if you'd like to discuss it.

Seems like a pretty easy swap on a Ram imo...
Good luck finding a motor.

No, you wouldn't have seen it on the ground. It doesn't blow a full chunk of the block out, it splits it and most of the time you just see a wide crack protruding out..


Don't get me wrong if you do it right you can have a full window but normally it's not that exciting..
