$3999 for a assembled shortblock? Thats pretty cheap considering what it has. Anyone dealt with them before?

Very cheap price, but it's not a 598 cid; could be as large as a 548 (4.53" bore X 4.5" stroke). I see $4300-$4400 in parts there plus it's balanced and assembled.

Probably nothing!!

I've always said I can build a big motor piece-meal some to a lot cheaper then a crate..

BUT it won't be a "balls-out" race motor, but rather just a good, BIG, POWERFUL driver....

I would check everything over best I could tho if I was to get one..

Well, I'll probably get it.. I'm adding a game room to the house now, so probably Mar-Jun timeframe I'll order one.. I'll sell my 505 bbc short block and pay the difference for this 598.
