          > How much are you looking for?

          Hi James,

          Really hard to know as they aren't that much of a sort after engine, not
          being in vogue with boy racers etc, so I am imaginging arounf the $1000 mark
          as I have seen standard rebuild ones around the $700-$800 mark.
