    Where to buy a bare ls1 block

    My ls1 is in my rockcrawler buggy. I took a hard hit that bent my skid plate into the oil pan and in turn cracked the block at the driver side rear corner pan mounting surface (found out it was cracked because I had a bad oil leak). I've since built alot better skidplate so it won't happen again. I took the motor to a local guy and he said he could repair/weld the crack. I also had him check the motor condition and what he found was that it needed rings and bearings. I decided to go with him and had him R&R everything plus port and polish the heads. Well, $3000 later I still have an oil leak. He is being very cool about and is willing to do all the labor for free to fix the problem correctly. I'm thinking I need to just replace the block and be done with it. So where can I get a good price on a replacement block???

    Try to find a used one. If you were closer I would sell you mine. Or you can get one for around $700 new from various sites on the net.
