A short block can come in two variants - block on its own, or with bearings, rods, crank and pistons. The full works is a lot more than $3700 If I wanted a fresh short block with all internals from BMW Germany I would have had to part with something north of 7000 Euros (exact price is unconfirmed, as I wasn't interested in it anyway)

I was never going to stick with an OEM engine - I knew that upgraded internals were going to be needed for my car at some point, given the type of driving the car is subjected to. And there's something really nice about knowing that the engine in a car is quite bespoke and built to be a bit special
