Look at the motors on mhpengines.com. $3k isn't gonna get you a motor and trans... $3k will get you a motor. My trans was like $1350 after shipping,a built trans you can tack an extra $800 onto. Mine is just a stage 1. Motors,stage 1 starts about $2900 for a short block. Maybe these more experienced folks will have a better suggestion,but if you can afford down time on your truck have your current engine built. I can't afford much down time myself
