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.
Where I come from selling something that you know is a bad deal or someone doesn't need is a violation of professional integrity. We lose a LOT of money buy not trying to sell our customers things they don't need, and in return we get a lot more customers coming to us because we run an honest business.
No one is required to have professional integrity, I've come to expect it because it is expected of me, but as Cobalt pointed out no one is required to do more than asked.
BTW "Cobalt327," is that a reference to the color, the mineral, or the car?
