Excuse my lack of engine knowledge, but I'm trying to learn, hehe. I am just moving away from car audio now (in which i learned a lot) to cars which I dont know so much. Thanks, MIchael.

if i remember right, the short block is just the bare block with crank, bearings, pistons and connecting rods.

the long block has got heads and the valve train installed.all it needs is the tin parts, and intake/exhaust

:word: sounds about right to me, although it may be different depending on which shop you're at. I've heard definitions of short block including oil pan and pump too.
