I'd tell them you feel they are junk and don't come back expecting free labor when it breaks. If there is one thing I've learned building these hot rods, spend the money and do it right the 1ST time.

If he wants an engine to last and perform like one from Harbor Freight, he has the right parts.
I wouldn't run that junk in mine, period.
He sure spent a lot on 'em, you can get SpeedPros for that much.
