    Its a good looking blazer but thats a little to much. I love it when I see the guys that try to sell thier trucks for what they got in to it. He probably added every reseat for every thing he has done to it and added a little for his labor.

    I sent the guy an email out of curiosity, asking if he misplaced a comma. His reply -

    [ QUOTE ]
    Sorry no mistake I have over $10,000 worth of engine alone. also i have reciepts for everything in the truck.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Apparantly he got ripped off on everything he did, he could have had a ramjet 502 and had money left over!

    I bet he had everything on his truck done by a shop. That could be why he is asking so much freaking money.

    10,000 isnt that bad for a good engine you have to remember that a ramjet 502 is a good engine but it does lack in quality . They are still basically put to gether like a stock engine they are not blue printed and probably not balanced like a custome buitl engine would be not tomention the quality of the parts are not as good it is still a all gm engine for the most part. I have a GM fastbern 385 after I blue it up we went threw it and removed al the stress risers from the block polished the inside and balanced and blue printed every thing you wouldnt belive how off some stuff was. I do got to admit the new rods are nice after you polish and balence them. The engine blew from a busted rod bolt. If they would use arp I probably wouldnt have had to go threw it as soon. any way I have abought 15000 in the engine now if I would have built it my self the first time I may have saved some cash but not much. Just so you know Im not saying the guy isnt crazey Im just saing if you guys added up all the cash you have in your ride you may be serprised just how much you have spent even if you are doing the work. If my wife new half the money in my GTA I would be a dead man.
