I agree with using a short block if it's a factory version. They are a PITA to work on while in the car because of the boxer design and lack of real wrench swing room, but out, no different then any other metric car. Just make sure you can get the right gaskets and timing belts before doing the project. I used Fel-Pro the last time I had one apart and was much happier then using the OEM stuff that was a LOT more expensive for less pieces.
