Question Short Blocks

I know that Tom (Focus-power) and Sean Hyland make short blocks for the focus but are their any other companies that make short blocks? If anyone knows of any please tell me, I'd like to see if their are any other then just two companies.

Well getting help wouldn't be a problem, I could ask one of the guys at the shop I use to work at if they could help me. What parts would I need though?

well you could decide on whether you want a CGI or stock block, then rods, pistons, rings, etc.......since your going all motor youll want higher compression obviously

Well I'm most likely gonna get the CGI block because its stronger then the short block. Yea I do want higher compression, thats why I wanna do this.

Well, I'm prolly gonna get the CGI block from Tom. I'm just not sure how much compression I want, the compression now is 9.6:1 but I need more, I'm also gonna get a ported head. I'm really going ALL MOTOR

Well I've got my plan. I'm getting the CGI block from Tom. Which will be line bored, and honed to fit my pistons. I'm getting Crower stage 2 camshafts, valve springs and retainers, connecting rods, and JE pistons with a 10.5:1 compression ratio. I'll also be getting a Focus Central ported head. That will take care of my engine build up
