I have a 2011 Tahoe with a 5.0 merc. The block is cracked (I know, my fault) due to the cold Winter. I need to have it replaced. Whittle Boats said Merc stopped manufacturing 5.0, I would need to go to a 5.7 at the cost of $12k. Is there any boat mechanics in the DFW area that can give me better news? I am ready to have it replaced (saved my cash up) but got the news today about the 5.7 swap.

We use the Jasper Engines which come with a two year warranty. Call Haydon if you want to schedule it. 972-771-4442
The price is a lot cheaper than Mercruiser OEM but just as good!

Your boat is very fixable and definitely not at the 12K price.
We have several affordable options.
Please let me know if we can help.
