How to sell a 2.3T setup

I am in possession of a 2.3 turbo engine, T-5 trans, and ECU/harness. The engine is disassembled as I was planning to build it for a future project. It is in excellent condition and the only reason I would even put new bearings/rings in it is because it has been taken apart.
I ended up buying a 2001 V-6 and so I won't be using the parts and was wondering if I should bother redoing it or leaving it apart before selling it. I see both sides of it. One person may want a good chance to throw other parts in or just do it themselves. Plus they may not trust a home builder to have done a decent job. On the other hand many might like to have an assembled engine intake to oil pan ready to drop in. It does have a freshly redone turbo (never even installed), and I would like to get as much for it as I can while not ripping anyone off. Should I even bother assembling it or leave it and sell it as is?

Re: How to sell a 2.3T setup

Leave it as is, where are you at, and how much you want for it?

I ask because I Want it depending on your price and the cost of shipping. I'm working on putting my 81 back together for a daily and this would save me from rebuilding the I4 I have in the back yard as well as searching for a trans for it since I tossed mine.

So, how much ya want and do you have some pics? Seriously interested here.

Re: How to sell a 2.3T setup

Anyone have a clue as to how much I should ask either way? I can't this complete of a setup anywhere to use as a reference (short of a whole donor car). I have everything from the cooling fan to the clutch. I mean everything. K&N filter, vane meter, sensors, injectors (brown top), harness, top mount intercooler, even the plugs and wires from when it last ran. The block has never been bored, nor the crank cut. I would do the normal redo stuff (hone, journal polish, ect.), but it needs nothing else. Heck, the clutch looks brand new. Just wondering what it is worth.

You've been a great help. After I'm done checking, you might end up with a deal. Just want to be fair on both ends. You do know how much the shipping alone on what may be 500# + will be right?

Not really, but I'll look into it if I need to. I posted this up on the other forum that could probably sell this motor quick, but I haven't received many responses yet. This is the only
response so far:

Since it is disassembled, I wouldnt pay more than about $300 for all of it. I would say for a good running example, you should pay between 400-600.

I found shipping for $500 so far. Who did you ship through for $200?

Nah, I have no liner, the trans will fit nicely down in the spare tire well.
