$2000 might be a bit much, plus I don't like to haggle with people. I usually try to price stuff so that it will sell quick just to be done with it.

I've seen JB Weld work wonders. Cracked blocks on circle track cars as well as reshaping intake ports that have been ground through. Won't hurt to try.
