Do you guys have "buddy's" like this. Guy wants me to build a 427FE for a project of his..

Run Forest RUN!!!

I try to tell the guy if he wants a 427 then why not just buy an Bear aftermarket block for around $3k, and be done with it.

Nope, he spends $2500 on an old side oiler that has been bored .050. Might make a good Japanese lantern, but I wouldn't want to actually try to run the thing.

Then instead of just buying an affordable stroker kit, he is trying to buy cheap FE parts for a Frankenstein build.

There is no way in Hell I would touch building this motor as I would get all of the blame when it explodes, spectacularly, on startup.

I try to explain to him that there are times when you can be cheap with buying some parts, and on other parts it pays to just save up, and buy good parts.

Any of you guys have any "friends" like this.
