It's all good so long that's you.
But if you have someone else working on it I would clear this up with them,

worth it to just pay the mechanic's shortblock $590?

You see, they may or may not make money on the part, they may or may not care
whose engine goes on and then they may or may not care who buys the engine itself,
but if you have a mechanic doing the actual repair I would likely consult with them first.
Yes, long before buying anything...
he does have a good point.

$590 for the shortblock. How much for the labor?
A new shortblock has a 90 day warranty. A new engine has 2 years.
Shouldn't be a tough choice.

I was talking about giving the mechanic a chance to get the engine. Most mechanics would rather replace the engine then do a shortblock.
