Any experience with Michigan Motor Exchange??

I am getting ready to ship off my 2000 XJ to them to do a motor swap. (They are only 20 miles away, and I don't have the time to do the install myself.)

I have called them and got a quote of $3000 for the whole job with parts. That will also give me a 3yr 250,000 mile warranty on the new engine. That puts them in the same area as others I have called.

When I question them about the head, (what do they use on it to avoid the stock head crack problem.) they say not to worry, you got the warranty, and they do all their own machine work and wouldn't let a bad head go out the door.

Before I drop 3 grand, I was hoping to hear from someone that has dealt with them before...

THOUGHTS???

I have looked into the 4.7 stuff online. It would probably be fun, but this truck is still factory. Its life with me will involve pulling a small box trailer up north, and then maybe chase truck duties for the Dirt Bike club I am in. Other than that it is a backup to the daily driver.

Considering all that, I have a hard time justifying going the whole stroker route. I also live in Monroe, and don't have the ability to get it to a place that is more than about 60 miles away.
