1k-1500, it depends on the market, hes prboably got 3-3500 in the motor but theres not a big market espically in this economy not many have that much laying around, there was just a built bp wtih cp piston pueter rods for 800 on here just recently. im starting to put money in my shortnose motor but theres no optino for a good short nose oil pumps, so its a ticking time bomb so i think i may go with the big nose 1.6 and get the boundary oil pump and have piece of mind knowing i dont have to worry about my pump failing and taking out the motor

Its in a 90 and its altogether. I got it all in and never had time to tune it and now I dont have time for any of it with my new job. I plan on selling everything except the body itself. Im just wanting to see what people are willing to pay first.

Can you do a compression and leakdown test? Can you pull the head and look at the cylinders? I don't recommend buying used built motors. Too much risk. I got burned doing it and it set my build back a year.
