Default Purchasing the right bllock for an LS Vtec setup?

I saw a b18 LS block for 150. Its complete with pr3 pistons but the owner told me that the top piston rings are broken on 2 pistons and they need to be replace but the walls don't have any scorching and it doesn't need any machine work just pistons. I'm am fairly new to the honda thing and will like to know if this would be a good buy for an LS/VTEC set up and what will I have to do to get the block good and running? and also the cost??

It was being sold as a long block but I only need the block being that I already have a head but I see what Steve H is saying thanks

alright if you were to ever take advice from a stranger.. take mine..

i was into hondas when i was younger.. and pretty much however much money you put into it.. your not going to get half of it out of it.. their are dozens of better cars.. any rear wheel drive coupe will be more fulfilling in the long run
