What is it that you have in the setup? £3-500 on eBay dependant on whats there and the condition.

And the rest. I've seen engines go over 1k easily. Some of them in a right state. It baffles me why someone would pay so much to be honest. Best bet is to throw it on Ebay.

My response was based on it just being the setup (I.e turbo, carb plenum and manifolds) not the whole engine and ancillaries. If it is a whole complete turbo engine as pulled from a metro then yes over £1k.
