Full cosworth longblock have failed in the past on <704 casting. If cosworth builds a block with a new block I dont see how it wont be a 704.

All you are doing than is changing builders and not the block problem you speak of per say.
agreed.

Stands behind their products doesnt mean much. Cossy had a bad batch of cams that split in half. Some customer's blocks were compeltly trashes afterwards. Do you think cosworth paid for the longblock?..of course not. The best they would do is replace your cams and say sorry.
