Too bad I don't still have my old 2.5 laying around anymore. I would let you have it for $50... Anyway, I got my engine from a local guy, it was out of a '97, and he fully rebuilt it. IIRC, it was like $1100, and I gave him what was left of my '84 CJ. For $1550, free shipping and that warranty, I don't think your gonna do much better.
