LBZ Blown - Looking for a long block or.....

Hey Guys,


Blew my engine pulling our 21k 5er this past Friday. I've decided I don't have the appetite for a new truck so I'm going to replace the engine. I'm looking for a reputable builder to buy a long block, injectors, and turbo from. It won't be a race truck but I'd like dependability for towing and the ability to through some more HP at it while towing would be nice.


I've googled and looked on ebay buy I'm hoping someone can recommend someone firsthand. I live in the Phoenix area so any installers or local companies would be welcomed. I haven't decided if I want to do the work myself or have the shop the truck got towed to do it. They would charge $2700ish for the swap.



Thanks in advance,


Casey

There are quite a few Dmaxers in the Phoenix area. I could pass this along to them for you.

I'd appreciate it. The shop the truck is at uses Jasper engines. Is that a bad move?


I don't want to go the used engine route.


Thanks,

The guys said to contact Copperhead Diesel in Mesa, or a place called Leroy's Diesel Performance in Peoria, Az. They both specialize in Duramax trucks.

One person said to check on Craigslist in your area, too. He had seen a running LBZ/trans for $3800. Also check car-part.com for your area.

Okay. So I decided to get the truck back down to where I live. I reached out to Sean at Copperhead Diesel. Very nice guy who took the time to answer my somewhat ignorant questions.

I'm pretty sure I'll have then do the work. What things do I need to make sure they do when it's at the machine shop/taken apart? So far I know I want:

- LB7 delipped mahle pistons
- Balanced crank
- ARP head bolts

I don't need a race engine but I want to spend the smart money now incase I want to add HP later.

Thanks in advance,

Casey
