Just to let people know, the engine & box is still in the car at the moment & just gauging interest & what its worth. (if the mods think this is in the wrong section then please feel free to move it)

Anyway, as title.
Engine: 1.8 K-Series engine out of a 52plate car, Re-conditioned at a cost of £2,025.13 on the 27/11/09 (odometer reading was 72653) It now reads just over 77k.

Gearbox: Was replaced with a recon unit on the 24/08/09 at a cost of £312.50

Have the reciepts here to proove all work.


Has anybody any idea what this engine & box would be worth? Got to be worth a prety penny to somebody really.

Thanks
Tom

Which version is the 1.8 engine, is it the 120 or 160? and what car is it out of? And who carried out the work? This should help a valuation.

Sorry.....

Its a 120 engine from a 52 plate ZS

The box was purchased from Car Transplants in Nantwich
The engine was done by Auto Solutions LTD

Hope this helps

The reciept doesnt list every thing individual. All i can say is engine is more than mint. Only gonna be taking out because a hi spec t-series engine will be going in it.

Sadly without detailed documentation of all work carried out and some warranty support you will not get anywhere near what you spent.

Perhaps you should get the engine builders to do a more detailed job sheet listing all parts.

As you are with it I would say you will struggle to see much more than £400-£600. (Thats not an offer, we build engines and gearboxes!)
