Question Block Cracked

I started leaking antifreeze, and what do ya know i got looking around and my block is cracked above the starter right behind the dipstick tube. I got searching around and seems a couple other people have ran into this. I know from previous experience welding just makes it worse. And no JB weld dont work worth a crap either. So i talked to locknstitch(the little pins) and they say that its the absolutely best way to fix this(superior). I have never done this and was wandering if anyone has? Sucess in it? The crack is about 2.5 inches long. It doesent go to the freeze out plugs.

i recently read an article abou tthe Cummins 53 blocks where tehy reviewed different techniques. Most of them were temporary, a year or two. The stich I believe was reviewd as well. It had a good review, but I think it was still labeled as prolonging the inevitible. I dont know if the same is true for PSD blocks but I cant imagine it being any different.

I also found this stuff called BLUE DEVIL. They absolutely guarantee it to work!? Flush the system put in the coolant etc. Has anyone used this?? And its amazing how everyone swears by their product. I guess its worth a try....right?
