    you can probably get a take out cheaper, but you never really know about the condition.

    Have you heard it run? I would at least do a compression test before I spent that much for a "rebuilt" engine...... Just good insurance and only takes a few minutes.

    You should be able to find remanufactured short blocks in the $500 range. The basic GM crate engine is a good motor. You can build them up pretty easily. The stock heads are pretty weak but the "Hecho in Mexico" blocks are good, other than the rough casting. Cost around $1200 for a long block
