I can tell you this- If you can't do, what you want to do, behind a stock X25........ then you need to forget about adding ballast, and work on your technique. (Unless you are a pro)
While I agree with all that you said, if he wants to buy an X25 but wants to see what it is like with 4K lbs in ballast then that's his prerogative. Heck he's going to drop close to a hundred grand, that isn't asking too much.
