Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Hello I bought the truck for $1600 bucks. Heads are bad. Is it worth machining if machinable or replacing engine?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
If worth replacing engine in your opinion do you have an engine interchange doc that would show me what makes and models I can do an engine swap out of based on vin number?
