Motor cost...Really???

So ive been having on going issues with the truck since ive had it and finally have come to realize that one day im just going to have to put a new motor in until I saw the prices of some of these crate motors. I was trying to see if there was a plug in play with the SRT-8 motors or just some minor changes to convert to the 6.1 and then I was just looking at a direct replacement for of the 5.7 I have ~ $5k and up REALLY!!!!! Thats insane. Anyways id like to here back from some people who have done a motor swap and to really get a good idea of my options. Thanks guys.

Why don't you look into how much it would be to have your present motor rebuilt?

You can get a reman long block for about $2600 and up.
Just have to shop around and figure out if you want to spend the money on upgrades or just a stock replacement.

Yeah my general thought process was by time I broke down the motor I could have probably just done a motor swap. I think it would just be piece of mind having all new rather than replaced parts. Just my opinion which has been known to change pretty easy haha
