Hi all, I've got a 2015 PRO FXT gas with a ruined engine that needs to be replaced (it cannot be rebuilt, trust me!). A replacement long block from Kawi is $6K so that's not an affordable option. I can remove and replace the engine myself. I have seen rebuilds on Fleabay for $2.5K. I also see the original engine being sold direct from China for about $600 (+600 shipping or so). Has anybody replaced their engine and used a rebuilder or shipped one in from China? And if so, what has been your experience?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Replacement engine update. I went straight to the engine manufacturer in China. The replacement long block for the KHI product cost $650.00. This included block, head, timing belt, cover, water pump, oil filter, oil pan along with intake and exhaust gaskets. I swapped over the fuel injection, exhaust manifold, drive pulley, flywheel, starter, alternator, belt and various brackets. All very straight forward if you have the ability and tools. I ordered the engine on 9-24, it went into production 9-25 and shipped 9-26. I received the engine by Fedex Freight on 10-6. The new engine is now installed and running great. Shipping from China cost $625.00 to my door. You will need a forklift to unload. A real easy process and so much cheaper than factory or rebuilders. It started right up and so far I am very happy with it at $1275.00 delivered!
