Short block versus Long block

My Santa Fe is at the dealer getting a new engine. They said they would need to use a short block because the long block was not available. What is the impact of this?  Does it mean a loss (or gain) in performance, power, etc?

Re: Short block versus Long block

A short block compared to a long block is only the difference of how much of the block is complete. A short block will probably have the crankshaft, rods and pistons in it.

The long block will probably have the heads, intake manifold and camshaft added to what was in the short block, making almost a complete engine.

All the accessories will be added on to the new engine, in the end it will be just like the old factory engine, just newer.
