Well I've been striking out locally. Called one shop and left a message and they never responded. Called another local machine shop and they have been jerking me around for 7 days trying to get a quote in writing on building a 521 short block. I think I've waited long enough since I was told on the phone I'd have the quote within 3 hours on Monday, then again on Wednesday, then again on Thursday.

So that being said can anyone point me in a good direction for a short block? Maybe one of the vendors here has one sitting around that someone never fully paid for? I did some research on eBay and thought I found a deal until I found the seller used to go by a different name and his engines are reportedly trash. Anyways, thanks in advance. I was just going to have the engine in the truck done, but figured I'd drive it until I got the 521 put together. Especially after the local shop that did call me back quoted 8-12 week turnaround.

Dang wish we'd of hooked up sooner. I did get my cam from and ordered the oil and water pump this week from you, but I already got a C8VE block and got a custom Scat stroker kit from Lem to achieve the CR I was aiming for. Glad to see your website is back up and running. Lots of great information, thanks! I'm sure you'll hear from me again in the future.
