There is a guy here in Atlanta selling a complete SHORT block. Thats pistons,rods,crank,upper and lower oil pans, oil pump(disassy) complete for $1200 plus shipping. 2 of the pistons were removed BUT no problems. This is NOT a block for 2.5 BUT it can be. The block is okay, can be re-used as 2.3. e-mail and I will pass it on.
