I don't know. I was just trying to give the OP an idea of what a re-manufactured short engine might cost if he were to buy one. Of course a new short engine would cost more.

FWIW I agree with the sentiment that the OP should at a minimum demand a new short engine. And if it were me, I'd be looking to do an immediate AS IS trade in on a new 35d. I wouldn't expect an even swap because I had the use of the 2009 35d for several months. OTOH I would not expect to take the "new car bath" twice in one year either.
