CIS 2.7 motor - worth buying?

I have a friend who want to sell me a 7R cased 2.7 with no fueling system for a really cheap price IF...

The big if is that the motor failed on him at a track event and he has no idea what the problem is. He said it seemed like it could have spun a bearing, but he isn't sure. If it spun a bearing, what are the chances that the crank, case and a rod, etc. are toast? If the motor can be rebuilt, the price is great, if not then it is more trouble than it is worth.

It's hasn't been apart since the incident, so it is a crap shoot. As the motor is in Austin and I'm in Seatle, there would be some sunk cost in getting the motor here to open it up that I am not real confident I wasnt to assume the risk.

Opinions?
