Default going big block ~~!

So my engine builder has been Fing me over for the past 4 months, the engines been there and the only thing thats been done is some valve work. 3 companies have said they cant make the pistons in the height i want and i cant even get diamond to make a custom set for me because of the rod and other issues. So the engine builder gave me my money back (well most of it at least) and ive been looking around for big block chevys, well i found this gem and am going to buy it tomorrow afternoon. smoking deal by the way

only paying 10.5 for it.

540ci all aluminum big block ford
This is an all aluminum Motorsport block 540 Ford. Heads are early A-460's heads with titanium valves and hardware flow over 500cfm flow sheets to buyer, block is also an early motorsport piece.

I feel like companies need to have the parts the advertise in stock and not take 9 weeks for a set of pistons to NOT be made cus they cant seem to comminicate between engineering and manufacturing. It will run all i need is a damn motor and converter and the car is ready to go.
