Is it safe to buy a 6.4L 392 crate hemi from Mopar?

I'm new here so first off, a big hello to everyone.

Secondly, I am considering buying one of the new 6.4/392 crate hemis from Mopar to transplant into my Cuda. After reading all the 426 horror stories I am now not so sure. I believe the new ones are built by someone else so I guess there is still hope however i'm hoping to hear from anyone who has had first hand experience with this new motor.

If i'm spending this amount of money on an engine, I want to be able to put it in and drive.

Thanks

You might try posting this in the New 5.7L-6.1L-6.4L Hemi section also.
