I would say the short block price is right in line, assuming they did the normal crank grinding, boring, etc. I have a friend that has a model A engine rebuilt. It cost over 2 grand. That's 2 less cy

I also run only a 180. Higher temps also require higher pressures to keep it from boiling. Hot spots in the block cause the water to boil; the steam pushes the water out and it overheats even worse.
