Need Recomendation on Crate 350 Engine

Well last night, the motor I thought was strong decided it was not and threw a rod right through the oil pan, So I am not looking for a replacement 350. I am kinda interested in a crate or remanufatured engine. But I only have a tad over 2,000.00 to work with, if you have any ideas or recomendations that would be great... Thanks...

Sad? Disappointed? Look at it this way... You get a NEW ENGINE and a little one-on-one time with your mistress.

Seriously though, good engines are plentiful if you shop around. I'll be following the suggestions as well-- I'm likely a year or two away from doing the same thing.

so your totaly turned off by the 350 now? you can get brand new 350's (290 hp/325 ftlb) for under $2k (dealer pricing) and bolt up all your existing goodies to it. surely with some shopping, you can find one even less expensive.

Torque is the measure of force that gets the cap off your beer.

Why would I be turned off by it? It was an old, unkown origins motor... For all I know it had a pre-exsisting issue... So if a 401 would bolt up to my th350 automatic transmission then I would go that route.. but it dont :-(
