Jasper 5.0 HO rebuilt engines?

Are these worth the price or is it better to go to a speed shop and have them rebuild it? I live in Jefferson, GA and MV Performance is right down the road. Hopp's Speed Shop is nearby as well. Just wondering because the Ol' Warhorse has 197,000 on the clock and probably won't last forever. Your thoughts are appreciated, as always.

Just my opinion....you do not know what u get with a Jasper engine,they mass rebuild them and push em out the door.I think you would be better off getting your motor rebuilt by a reputable shop,and making the decisions on what is done to it.


Cherish those around you,for at the blink
of an eye,they can be gone.

Thanks! You may be right but I was thinking that maybe Jasper would be OK since they have a standardized way of performing a rebuild and I was just going to go with a basic stock rebuild anyway. At a reputable shop in the Southeast, what is a reasonable price for a rebuild?

Jasper 5.0 HO rebuilt engines? Cost for speed shop rebuild?

About how much should I expect to pay for a speed shop rebuild if I am only getting it build to factory specs?

Mine had a Jasper engine in it when I bought it. The only problem is that someone (Maybe them, maybe the owner before me) retapped the threads on the oil drain plug on the bottom of the pan and did it a little crooked so it slowly leaks. I'm rebuilding the bottom end this winter, so it has to wait till then for a new one.
Speaking of that, does anyone have experience with installing a 7 quart pan on a foxbody. I found one that says it fits the stock suspension ans k member, but how does it effect engine installation?

Lilred: You can expect around $600-$800 for a stock rebuild.

5.0: I have a 7 quart Canton pan, it makes the install between it and the crossmember really close, you'll just have to make sure to be careful because the corners of the sump can catch the member. That would throw off the engine placement, extra hands would be good to have to help see the clearance when putting it in.

How much would it add to the cost for 1.7 rocker arms and maybe a modest stroker kit (not a 347)? I appreciate the info. I thought a basic rebuild was gonna cost $2000 or more. With the mileage mine has, a stock rebuild would be like putting a blower on it

a decent set of roller rocker will range.... $225-300

stroker kits can be brought as low as $795.00 and go higher from there....

it all in what you want to spend......
