Them Lil Red Truck needds a new engine. 228,000 and she's real tired!

Any suggestions? I'm near Chicago.... :help:
What year/make/model and engine type do you currently own? Are you looking to refresh what you already have, or are you contemplating a complete drivetrain swap for additional power?

Right now it's a 5.2 with snorkel (EBAY special) and a Flowmaster Catback. It has low compression on 4 and 6 along with a slight miss. Mechanic says it "probably" needs a valve job however, if I do that, it may blow out the bottom end do to age/ miles.

I checked into a Jasper, 5K installed. 3 yr/ 75K warranty on parts and labor. I'd like to do a few "enhancements" though (TB, cam, headers, PCM) and that invalidates the Jasper warranty (Along with any other I've been told) so I thought I'd check other options.

Any ideas?
I also would recommend talking to Dan Arcand - he has built quite a few blocks for Dodge Dakota/Durango owners - performance parts won't be an issue.
