Hi and welcome to the forums.

When they refer to long and short blocks, they are just referring to how much of the engine will be replaced.

The short block is basically everything below and not including the heads. This is a basic block with crank, pistons etc installed and a long block is a full engine including fully built heads but would not have the external accessories on it.

If you have a choice then get the long block as it is basically a whole new engine.
