It is NOT the job of a machinist to tell a customer any such thing. For all the machinist knows, the engine is going back into a #'s matching 'Vette. His "job" is to give the customer what he came there for- and if that's a rebuilt set of 883's- then so be it!

It is the job of the engine's owner to have done his homework BEFORE investing his cash into a less-than-stellar set of heads, IMO.
