Default WTB 1.8 Short Block...

As title states, would like to find a 1.8 short block. Internal condition isn't much of an issue as long as the block is intact with no problems.

Located in NC. Give me some offers!

Just FYI there is a 01 engine for sale in Texas for $400 in the classifieds here. Might be worth looking into.
