    I only purchase Mercruiser remans or I build my own if it is no longer available through Mercruiser, or you get an upgrade.

    You will pay three times the cost if you try to do it cheap.

    I used to install jasper years ago. More than 50% failure rate. Bought a jasper engine 6 years ago because they had it and I needed it in a Hurry. Installed it, Knocked right from the first start.

    As for the South Florida builder, his product was good until he went to Chinese/cheap parts. Out of all his engines I installed, only two are still in service. Biggest problem with the S FL. guy is they cut the radius out of the crank shaft.

    A warranty should never have to be used.

    Why not rebuild the engine you currently have? The Crusader blocks are very stout and unless you have a crack or hole, I would just rebuild.
