    what longblock is it, what car will it be going into? We need more info to help.

    Above poster forgot motor mounts. You're also gonna need a head to put onto the block.

    A long block includes the head, a short block doesn't.

    It really depends on the longblock. Some people will say a complete longblock is the block, head and all the assescories, intake manifold, etc...some will say it is block and head.

    I know he might not need motor mounts but it doesnt hurt to replace them.

    Yes, in new terms this is correct. IE if you bought a new LS1 longblock from Gm, you would get heads and block. Same thing with spoon engines. You get block and head with all the internals (plus valve covers) However, on most engine vendors for hondas have there own version of what a Long block is. Hmotors defination is basicly remove the tranny and what ever is still on the engine, you get.
