Arias 85mm forged Pistons
M series rods
Piper 275 cams
Piper verniers
Arp head studs

Mileage under 20k, me personally since fitting this in April 2012 I have done under 7k with it. All pretty much at standard boost or under :lol:

Owned previously but never built up by imran, prior to that c2k and John p.

This was a well known engine a couple of years ago but I've done nothing with it bar a few thousand miles, I'm an embarrassment to the badge :lol:



Currently just interested in a what's it worth.

As a bare block as I bought it, but would also be interested in a price for it as is.

Eg everything bolted to it, gearbox, water pump housing, oil cooler, stainless pipe work, etc etc

Many thanks.

So you are adding £300 for car shell, turbo, manifolds, exhaust, etc? Seems a bit crazy. To say the least, unless the car shell is an utter dog and more an engine trolley.

Surely a better price would be based on a more recent sale of my old engine, je pistons on standard rods (as much as M series might take more they are not forged rods) That sold for £400

So I'd say £500-700 for the bare engine, considering cams, verniers and arp's but then beauty is in the eye of... etc.

I knew this was a good one
