4.2 time....few questions

Well it looks like I lost a crank on my 3.8 and was considering a 4.2 short block from 5 star ford. First off....who do I contact at ford and what is the estimated price for the 4.2 short block. Also I need a balancer, flex plate and oil pan. Is this all that is needed if I plan on using all the single port stuff?? Thanks guys!

FIve star is only a days drive there and back....already have good heads and intake, roller rockers and such...just want the short block. Plus the california smog nazis would not pass it with the 4.2 intake. But they would never know about the short block!

when you call greenleaf and find out the deal they will give you on a whole motor you can sell the 4.2 intake to someone and get a sweet deal.

I'd be willing to bet that a greenleaf takeout late model motor with low miles on it will be far cheaper than the fivestar shortblock. Plus they ship it to your door for cheap instead of having to go drive somewhere.
