Value of 3.9 engine

Guys,

There's a possibility that my entire 3.9 engine will be for sale including fuel rails, injectors, plenum, rebuilt dizzy, new alternator, new water pump, valve job 36 months ago. 97K miles, steady performer, some very minor noise that's been there for years and doesn't change. I don't believe she's performing at 100%, possibly due to some flattening of the camshaft.

Question is, I have NO IDEA what it's worth. Getting an idea of its value will help me determine what I can spend on a 4.6 to replace it. (Yeah I know, anyone needing a 3.9 would prefer a 4.6 too -- unless they're doing a stock restoration.)

Any help appreciated.

Doug

doug you can use almost every thing off of your 3.9 for the 4.6 so you may not want to sell.

I'm looking at a complete package that includes all the above, brand new. So it would all be available.

Let me know if you find a good deal on a 4.6, I might be in the market for one real soon. If they find problems with my 3.9 (I hope it's just the head gasket).

Cheers,
Rich
