Default Where to find a DOHC Shortblock

Anyone have recomendations for a DOHC Short block for a 97 SW2 Automatic

Rebuilt 90% of the engine and found the block to have melted =(

replaced the head with a rebuilt, along with a couple other parts, 3 weeks later overheated

found a leaking water pump + melted temperature sensor = seriously warped engine

didn't figure out the block itself had warped until after pulling the whole thing apart and replacing / cleaning everything inside (didn't have a straight edge and didn't think it got that hot)

lot of time down the drain... ready to take the quicker route so long as everything is put together properly

head has been shaved and had less than 200 miles on it since the swap

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
