The heater hoses need to be included also.
The prices seem to vary, but many Bullitt manifolds that I see for sale are not complete, like you have. I honestly wouldn't take any less than a thousand dollars for just the complete manifold setup. Plus whatever that you think the value of the supercharger is, as a complete, ready to bolt-on setup.
I guess the answer is, as much as you can get! Lol

Are uou still considering a Terminator swap?
I looked locally on CL, and I didn't see any engines or drivetrains for sale.

And you could sell your silver circle thingy and the Bullitt manifold as a package, and that will likely fund a great deal of the swap!



I still think that you should put a big ol' turbo off of a Peterbilt, or something, on it...The vaper's panties will be absolutely DRIPPING!

Probably would spool at like 8,000 rpm lol

Honestly I did not realize they were worth that much as a complete setup. I was thinking they were only worth $600-700. I'm glad I asked.

Yeah I'm reconsidering the Coyote swap just because motors seem more readily available. So far I've only found a handful of terminator engines/drivetrains and everybody is asking way too much for them. There was an engine in Cali pulled from an obvious front wend collision with a jacked up harmonic balancer, scratched valve covers, and unknown mileage and the seller wanted $5k for it. I can't find drivetrain (engine/trans) for less than $7,500.

Find a diesel that runs a variable geometry turbo and you would probably get some decent spool out of it. Some of our package cars at work run a Cummins ISB07 with that turbo. They're pretty heavy though.

Lol.
Well, a turbo from a typical large Peterbilt truck engine would probably be a little large for a 4.6 litre engine... But you have to keep in mind that although diesel engines usually have a much larger displacement than gasoline engines, they also spin at much lower RPM's than gasoline engines. For instance, a 10 litre diesel engine at red line, moves roughly the same amount of air as a 5.0 litre gas engine does at red line.
It's not as simple as grabbing a turbo from a diesel in a wrecking yard, and bolting it on to a gas engine, but with some research, it is possible to find a turbo that will work very well for a gasoline engine application.

I see them advertised for $600-700 a lot. I've even seen them a little cheaper. As I said, many are incomplete, many times not including the throttle cable. And I have never seen anyone selling a Bullitt manifold that includes the alternator! And everything else.
That's why I think that yours is on the high end of the market. And look at how clean it looks in the pictures! It's spotless! Haha
That's just my opinion.

Hmm that makes sense. I have a lot more to think about now. Getting the blower and intake manifold will go a long ways towards funding a motor swap.

The one thing you have to look at though. For a grand I'm sure there are probably better manifolds out there than the bullit such as the edelbrock Victor Jr and the Trickflow unit.

10 years ago that wouldn't have been true but 10 years ago we were still stuck either swapping to 3 or 4v heads or porting the craptastic factory 2v heads. The factory engineer that designed the 2v head needs beat! Something as simple as moving the intake valve like Trickflow did would have saved a lot of headache and heartache for us 2v guys!

Those are pretty much copies of the Bullitt manifold. And they do not include the alternator!

As far as I'm aware alternator isn't needed for edelbrock setup. And is cheaper. I may be wrong though. And I don't really think the edelbrock is a copy of the bullit. The Trickflow I can see it being a bit of a copy, which is why I never bothered paying that price for something that may give my current setup maybe 5-8rwhp. Now granted the aluminum manifolds such as the bullit, Trickflow, and edelbrock won't crack like some of the plastic ones have been known to do.

Yeah. Calling the Edelbrock a copy might have been a bit of a stretch.
The Bullitt manifold is a factory performance part so that will always cost a premium.

I can't recall. Do the aftermarket manifolds come with the throttle body included?

Not 100% on the Trickflow. I know the edelbrock doesn't require the bullit style as far as I'm aware. But I agree that 700ish is decent pricing for used factory performance parts. Not sure what the throttle body goes fit though.

So I'm thinking this blower has been previously rebuilt at some point in its life, I have absolutely no shaft play in any direction.

What will you be asking for the complete SC set up? Or are you not selling it seperate from the manifold bundle?

I was thinking of selling the blower for like $2,000 or $2,100 by itself and the ask $3,000 expecting to get talked down if I sold it with the manifold.

Seems like a very reasonable deal to me..

Motor is almost ready to come out. Ran into a bit of a snag with my exhaust. One of the bolts mounting the midpipe to the passenger side is cross threaded and seized in the header. It's too tight to try and drill out the bolt and I can't seem to get enough leverage to try and break the bolt off. I'm trying to think of an alternative way of getting everything pulled off but haven't had any luck yet.

Are you pulling from the top or dropping through the bottom? If your dropping the engine n trans from the bottom you could drop it with it and that would give you the room. Other than that I say big breaker bar or long ratchet and get the car as high as safely possible.

Pulling out the top. The plan is to leave the transmission in for now.

I was using my 36" Snap-on half inch ratchet on it but got to the point where I'm gonna need a cheater bar to move it any more. I'm losing a lot of torque because I've got about a foot and a half of extensions.

Too much play in the extensions too. Wish I had a snap-on!

Yeah unfortunately there isn't really any other way to reach it easily. If I had my impact and an air compressor then this bolt would come right out.

I have never seen one of those before. There isn't a nut on the bolt, the flange for the header is threaded. Here's a picture to kind of show what I'm dealing with.

Current parts buildup. All that's left to pull the engine:
-Bellhousing bolts
-motor mounts
-that one exhaust bolt
-possibly exhaust manifolds

I wish I could but I don't think off have room to get in with a grinder, and I don't have any air tools or a compressor at my house.

I considered it, but I don't know if I will be able to get a drill up in there. I may just try to disconnect that header from the engine and see if I can't pull it while leaving the manifold and midpipe in there.

Do you know anyone with an impact and air compressor? If not then have someone hold it on while the other uses a big bar on the end if you have enough room between the car and the ground!

Not anyone with a portable setup, a couple buddies have standing compressors but those aren't going anywhere. I need to bring on of my nice sockets home from work because my current Pittsburg socket keeps slipping off the bolt and is starting to round the head. I need to find something good enough to be a cheater bar first, most of the metal I've got laying around will break. One way or another that bolt will come out, I may just have to get creative.

Hey at this rate it isn't going anywhere. I've had multiple people tell me they will have the money in a month or two, but I don't really expect them to come back once they actually have the money.

You're building a corner carver right? I ant remember any more.
