Hey, I'm in Kalamazoo too. Perhaps we should touch base with each other some time. I'm in need of a shortblock as well and I just priced one at Maple Hill Subaru the other day. I don't know if you work in the repair industry or not but I do and their price for me was $1845 plus tax.
Side note, do you know anything about Strictly Import Motorsports on Stadium drive or Graveyard Motorsports on North Burdick? I need a set of heads and bumped into those two local leads.
