Look here for "got some new stuff for engine R&R" it's about 8-9 pages back now.
I'm making 280whp on a mustang dyno with the old short block. I paid about $2100 for the new ej257 and gasket set.
208,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
