I would stay clear of MMR. My friend has had several cars in his shop over the years and there were many problems with MMR motors. You can just rebuild your existing motor with some forged pistons and rods and it will hold up fine.

If you're going to buy a short block I wouldn't choose the less expensive of the bunch. MMR builds fantastic race cars..... for themselves. The tolerances to build into their customer's engines are way out of spec for a potential Big HP motor. L&M, Livernois, RGR are some quality engine builders that use quality parts. Might be a little more but there is a reason for it.
