Im curious to know what a stock for stock replacement will cost. I suppose if it is just a long block replacement, then I can agree with your guess. If when it detonated it affected a head, or the supercharger, or more, we are closer to $50,000.
Did a price come out on the crate engine Ford announced?
A full long block is $43,539.37, and a service engine is $24,748.43; both plus labor, fluids, misc bolts and so on.
