maybe you want a new block to build your motor while still being able to drive your Celica around? is that right? And along the same lines of having no down time maybe you want a fresh block to put in just in case you blow your motor?

I just did a search on http://www.car-part.com and found 3 listed and 2 with prices. There's one for $300 in Columbus, Indiana. http://www.cars-and-parts.net/

I get my kicks on EC.
