    Remanufactured 4.0L recommendation?

    Time to look at replacing a 4.0L inline six with 183k miles on it. Have found a bunch of places that sell remanufactured motors but since I have never bought one I was hoping I could get some recommendations. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    dont buy from pro-formance engine. My lifters went bad in the engine i purchased from them, so i gave them a call and long story short i was 8 hours out of my warranty and they basically told me to hit the road.

    Is yours running bad? Mine went to 250K. Drive it til it pukes and take the extra time to save for a stroker or at least a custom build to get the benefit of the earlier, stronger pistons.

    X2. If there's nothing wrong keep driving it. I'm about 500 miles from 200K and I'm still running strong.

    I purchased a remaned motor last year for $1500 and that was shipped to my front door on a crate. They even covered the cost the ship back my bad motor and refunded the $300 core fee, which surprised me since the motor had a huge crack in the #1 piston wall. I looked at the stroker first but it was another $900 and they couldn't guarantee me that it would pass smog here in Cali. That was a must. The co. I used was APS (advanced powertrain solutions) out of Addison TX. A few people referred me to them for their good quality work, low prices, and great warranty (3 year 100,000 mile) I looked everywhere and couldn't find a better deal. They put me in contact with a local vendor so I had someone I could personally go in and talk to if I had any issues but have had none yet.
