Should be good money for that spec as everything is at high standard and reputable parts I'd imagine around the £1500 mark as it would cost more than that to build the engine, I'd sell the rest of the bits seperate ie the mani and turbo,

I would say £1500 for the engine minus turbo and manifold

Wasn't the turbo on ebay not so long ago iirc

Was it you that sold the xpower diesel springs on ebay to me :lol:

As with anything rover, it's worth more in bits...

The head is always the biggest loss as you just can recuperate the labour costs in a performance head.

It's a huge spec and I'd say more than that as a complete unit, mine was slightly less than the figure stated and not as high a spec.

You half to pay for a half container, this is about £2k then it has to have lots of documents reference the srs, abs and crash damage report and emissions.

Basic it's a ball ache, then registration fees, also parts are hard to come by here...
You'd be down at least £3500-4000 just getting it in the country...

Sometimes you just need to grow a pair and GTF

I have been talking to Jason about it... As he done it in December. As much as I would like to take it over, it's a big output. For £4k, I could buy a 5.0 hemi!
