    For a bare block just keep your eye on the FS forum here, and on ebay and craigslist. I don't know of a place that sells just the bare blocks. Most yards sell em as complete engines.

    hm yeah i guess a close eye on privet sellers is a good way to go. i couldnt believe the prices when i checked that website one of them wanted a grand for it, some werent too bad though. unless they were really talkin about short blocks and just callin em blocks. either way thanks for the tips guys, very appreciated.

    maybe i could jus trick someone with a cr-v into tradin for my a series haha:wtf2:
