Did the rod destroy the original block? If not question him on why not just rebuild the engine or at bare minimum a crank kit. 100K is not good on an engine that doesn't have a good track record to begin with, if he is trying to keep the cost down that engine is not the way to go. A used engine will work especially if he gets one that has a warranty, of course if the engine did go bad you would be stuck with the labor for the R&R. Another way is to get a rebuilt engine from a rebuilder, these usually have a replacement warranty, but you could be looking at an easy 1500 to 1800 bucks. HTH

Is the engine completely new or a reman? Is your current engine a good core or did it destroy itself? Are planning on keeping the car long enough to warrant a new engine? 2800 is a little high but if he is doing everything he is suppose to do to honor the warranty, like replacing the radiator, hoses, belts, water pump, etc. then he is within the range of total cost to do the job right, it seems like labor and parts prices are starting another price jump.
