NAPA Remanufactured Engines

Has any one had experience with NAPA remanufactured engines? What cam would be a good choice for a 92 351 that will give a power increase without hurting gas millage? Also this engien has 200k on it, should I replace the injectors or just run them as is?
Thanks

I would NEVER trust a rebuild from any parts house!

You'd be better off buying an old motor from a salvage yard and having a local shop build the motor.

If time is not an issue, rebuild the one you have.

NAPA motors are remanufactured by Delco, and are good quality. I would trust it in my truck in a heartbeat. Autozone and Advance use Recon motors, and I've heard they are all bored .060 over. I know people who have had no problems with those either. The motor from NAPA will probably be a little more expensive, but it's worth it in quality.

for a good cam go to Crower cams and get one with a 112 or 114 LDA and this will work well with efi, they are good and reasonably priced.

I've been running a NAPA remanufactured engine about a year and a half now. I'm satisfied with the quality and performance. It has a 3 year/unlimited milage warranty.
