I assume that you have the 350 in it. True GM no longer makes the 350, sad I know but it's true. My next question is why did you go to a dealer? There are plenty of independent shops out there some even specialize in Corvette, they would have access to the engine you need, may even be able to bump up the ponies a little if you are so inclined. Call around, just don't let a dealer be your only choice.

Be aware that once the original corvette engine is replaced you lose a tremendous amount of resale value. I can't understand ... with all the "aftermarket" corvette parts .. why that engine can't be repaired.

Have you tried a junk yard?

Why does it need replacement, and who told you that? Before spending a lot of money, go to trusted garages or ask other gear heads to direct you to a fair garage for opinions. I replaced my short block after 325,000 miles because I had three major unrepairable cracks in it. I got an empty 350 short block and put my old engine's (new parts) parts in it. saved five grand.
