I'd be sceptical about an operating aluminum all metal model with 500+ pieces and ONLY $53.

Me smells a scam!

Although, the $500 kit is a little fishy too. What does it have that makes it cost so much?

I just bought a real 289 bored .060" over, complete except for cam and lifters, for $800.

I think I got a better deal.   B)

Yeah, but yours is too heavy to put in a model car. 😒

Is this the same one discussed a few years ago? On that one, it was discovered that the $53 engine was only a simpler one cylinder engine and the 8 cylinder engine shown in the ad was considerably more expensive. 

The old "bait and switch" ploy.

It'll go in a 1:1 model just fine. Didn't we have a discussion about "how big is too big etc. etc." recently?  ;)
