Hope its a Jasper. Or something with a warranty, A good ahop would stand behind their work.It's only a little over a yr old reman and mayne 7k miles tops. The receipt only says reman engine written on it. I got the shop number from the PO and told him the situation, I am trying to see if he will help me with the shop and at least get me a break on repairs (don't really want to take it back for the same crap). I am hoping it is a jasper engine which is a 3yr 100k transferable warranty (and I don't like Jasper either).
Last hope is to atleast he can shed aome light on what was done so I can tell my shop.
How far can you bore out a 454 block? Lol
The PO sounds like a respectable person. It’s good of them to do that for you since your having trouble with it this early. You don’t find someone like that everydayIt's not a Jasper. The shop said they will rebuild it again but I'd have to cover parts.
The PO offered $1000 toward the shop of my choosing.
I was hesitant to call but when I did he said he would try to work out a way to get it in the shop that did the work originally. I'm not a fan of having a possibly bad experience with similar results after towing it 4hrs back to where I got it.The PO sounds like a respectable person.

Non transferable warranty and its only a 12 month warranty and its been 16 months. No online reputation.What is good on the powertrain again? Transfer case, front diff, and warranty rebuild on engine look like a black hole for cash. Me thinks the PO got the "Oink" outta this one. I hate to ask, but, how is the front end?
You can get a used 454 for less than cost of new crank. Even for parts...
Nothing wrong with warranty because s#it happens. How is the online reputation of the shop? 8 hour day driving for engine warranty x2 because the rebuilt engine was a selling point is... Wait, why are you covering parts under warranty?
