Blew up my 5.7 this weekend. Siezed the motor and oil everywhere. Any reccomendations on where to buy a new or remanufactured 99 5.7 Mercruiser? Thanks

    Sorry about the bad news, do you know what caused it?

    Al mentions in that thread a rotating assembly, otherwise known as a shortblock, for $3500... You'd need heads, or rework the ones you have, intake manifold,.exhaust manifold, ect... You should be able to use a lot of your stuff off the current engine.. depending, of course, on condition..
