Would I be better off buying a 2nd gen non 53 block?

also remember some have a crank sensor (tone wheel on the crank) and a cam sensor, some engines only have a cam sensor

something else to research
I believe my 01 only had the cam sensor

01-02 are the only ones, but the hole is there for it and if he uses his crank its a mute point.

the blocks are most certainly not the same... 12v/VP? similar (same in late 97/98 STORM blocks) but the CR block is completely different and is nowhere near an interchange

Hoyboy, read this thread.

3rd gen head on 2nd gen block 24V

A 24 valve blocks and heads will bolt up with small modifications but pistons are different between the two. Also from '94-'02 the motor mounts are the same, the early 1st gen blocks have different mounts as well as the 2003 - current models do. If the body style changes so do the mounts. You can put a 12 valve head on a 6.7 block with the correct modifications.
