So recently I have been having issues with fuel related issues.
But in the back of my mind the voice is saying just have the engine get a top end rebuild in which it would save alot of down time in the furture but then the cheap gene jumps in and says just replace what is currenlty bad and be good for the next time.
option one = rebuild
option two = just fix the bad part for now
will the block go bad if i do option 2 or does it really matter?
if option one is more beneficial who near me would be recommended for the job since it will involve more than i am capable of? Location Montgomery Alabama
would I send the engine off to some shope or the entire truck?

What's leading you to believe you need a rebuild?
If you are having fuel-related issues I would focus on that.

I wouldn't think about a rebuild without first performing a compression test on the motor.

been having issues every four to six months , something new each time. Everytime the engine gets torn down something goes missing or disturbs something else. So I figuered teardown the top end once and replace the common issue with an lly
like water pump , water pump bypass, cp3 , FPR, fuel head assembly , clean out center bridge , pcv , connectors, studs, lift pump, rubber lines, injectors, injector upgrade kit, not sure of any other parts or issues but that is what I was thinking so far
