new short block Qs

Here's a dumb question:

If you buy a new short block from Porsche...just what do you get?

I assume you get a bare bones block , and add your good stuff from the donor engine, including AOS, tensioners, head, etc., etc...then buy new parts as needed.

Sound right?

A short block is basicly every thing below the heads assembled.

You mean between the heads?
