Lawd forbid my engine checks out tomorrow AM,
My choices are NEW crate engine from fud-mud-cud, if they were not out of
them, if they were willing to sell it to me, $13,000 - not welded and not
A rebuilt Jasper engine, pinned, for $8,330 exchange. Warranty?
A pinned rebuilt from SHO Shop - no core charge - $6,500 - one year warranty
American Engine - 6 month to lifetime warranty , might be pinned or welded
$4,100 labor include.
Bone yard engines not welded or pinned, $2500 - $4000+ labor not included.
Not rebuilt, may not be any good.
I am happy SHO owners have another choice, Is SHO SHOP ripping folks off? I just don't see it that way. I think Vadims' work and pinning is worth $2,000 so factor it in. If we ever get a recall I would expect pinned not welded cams from Ford.
I am rather loath to strike out at someone who provides a reasonable option. I could afford to get my cams welded; So I welded them. I would not turn down a set of pinned cams fro SHO Shop if offered, given my state of poverty.
Picks your choices, pay your monies,
