    Bummer dude, but now's the time to consider what your goals for the car are. If you want nothing more than stock, go stock, if you'd like quite a bit more power handling go with an EJ257 shortblock and make a hybrid (though it will be substantially more work). If you want to build the block you have, get some upgraded rods and pistons.

    There are manufactureres that make built shortblocks for our vehicles, but be prepared to pay out the nose for them. It's cheaper to do it yourself or to buy the parts and have it assembled at a trusted shop.
