Engine Aftermarket For 3.0

I was just searching through the forums about parts for my 3.0 do they make any after market heads or blocks or anything like that? Does anyone know any websites to go to because my engine locked up and I need a new one and I like the theory "when somthing breaks make it better"

morano racing or rouge performance are two sites that would either sell interior components of the engine or give good advice about what to do. It ain't gonna be cheap to build an engine.

I recently bought some 1.7 roller rockers for my 3.0. That's as internal as I have gotten on mine.

I scrolled through briefly. He had 3.0 roller rockers (rouges are a bunch cheaper), camshaft, and upper/lower intakes. i didn't see pistons or rods.

Here's the roller rockers I got from rouge. I'm putting them on next weekend
