It's good that you're trying to learn. Just be aware, these are some of the most finicky engines you'll ever work on. It's not a Chevy small block which fits together like Lego bricks and will run after a shot from a tank. If you, at any point, aren't 100% sure, stop and either get a shop or more experienced friend involved. It's really easy to throw $5k down the drain with a misstep.

New update. I found a stock ej257 short block with 90k miles on it. It cost me $1200 for the motor and $135 for the shipping. Is there any company that sells complete engine gasket kits? Im going to do as much of the maintenance on the new motor before I install it. Moroso oil pick up tube, gates timing belt/pulleys and water pump kit. I'm going to do a new oil pump, rear main seal. I know I'm missing alot. What else should I do while I have the engine out of the car before I install it?
