Power Pro Engines

Anyone had any experience with these rebuilt engines as Iam planning on purchasing one (4.3) for my 85 Gmc Safari van. Thanks (this is a very informative forum)

Sorry, have not heard of them.. (this doesn't mean anything LOL!)
Dealt with GM target, Jasper, 4 Star, and a few others..Not Power Pro..
What kind of warranty do they offer? What sort of work do they do when they rebuild? What price range?

I am from the old GM and Jasper engines. I have heard and read on the engine co of which you speak, know nothing about them, but seems the new warranty of I believe, 5/100,000 miles is OK on new and the 12/12 on rebuilts is pretty much common. More competition than there was 40 years ago.

Hmm, still never heard of 'em. What's the price difference between them, Jasper, ATK North America and GM Goodwrench?

I'd go with the latter---has the most updated parts.

There might be better warranties out there..But I'll say the labor rate sounds reasonable.. I live in a small town, and we get $65.00 flat rate..
