It comes with a 2 year parts & workmanship warranty (the ones from Scoggin-Dickey only get a 90 day warranty). The 383 from M&R Engines is priced right in between the ones from Scoggin-Dickey & uses a better crank & rods than the others. I would like to keep my purchase price low, but at the same time, I believe that an engine with forged pistons will offer more long term peace of mind. Can anyone give me some input as to the longevity of the GM ZZ engines?? Would the 383 be the better choice?? I don't mean to slam you all with so much information & so many links, but this is a big purchase for me (my last engine cost me $140 out of pocket!!) & I want to get something that will last a long time, but will also be able to stand up to a little 'hot rodding'. Any help/input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I would look at M&R's feedback on Ebay. Look to see if anybody else has purchased one of their engines. If so, you can contact that person who bought and engine from them. Then you can see how they like their motor purchase from M&R.
