Truck Repair/Blown engine


have a 2007 ISX 500 hp cummins that spun inserts in bearings, could you tell me approx. cost to rebuilt this engine verus dropping a crate motor in

To do a proper rebuild without it needing any machining your looking at roughly 15k. I'm not sure what crate motors go for. One thing to keep in mind with the isx motor is they are very touchy when it comes to tolerances and debris inside of them. It will lock up and throw a rod. So if you do the rebuild take the time and do it right.
