    Okay i have been reading the board . Once in a while i see people talking about long blocks. I have been looking for a filler engine till i can build my own. The block i found for filler is a ZC SOHC VTEC engine. Im being told that this engine is a short block. So whats the diff and how can you tell?

    Which means, you don't want the short block because you probably want a transmission, header, and intake manifold.

    Just ask the seller what all comes with the short block. Most likely he's probably selling just the block itself.

    short block=actual block(block, pistons, rods, crank, etc.), long block=short block+head
