The price above is for a new shortblock, not a rebuild. Rebuilding one usually costs more after you count labor to tear down, blueprinting, machining, etc. I'm actually saving up for one of these bad boys right now. MUCH less headache and downtime.
FWIW, other places have quoted me $4500+ for a forged piston/rod rebuild reusing my crank, block, and oil pump. That did not include pulling or installing shortblock. That was if I pull my own motor and bring it to them. Then consider the days or weeks to have it properly machined, transporting to/from, machine shop lead time, assembly, etc.
