Also keep in mind what all pieces you actually will be getting with the engine. Some places will sell you an engine that is literally a drop-in, you just hook up your wiring harness to it and go. Those engines still have the fuel injection system, throttle body, MAF, PS pump, etc still on the motor.
Others will strip all of that and just sell the ENGINE. If this is going in a new application [as opposed to a replacement of the same type engine] you might find yourself looking for some very expensive parts to hang on that new engine you just bought.
Also keep in mind if you are putting in an M119 in an application that did not previously have that engine, you will most likely need the LH Computer modules, wiring harnesses [upper and lower], mods to the main body harness and a bunch of other fitments.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
