I am about to receive a parts car with a 2.7 E motor with I head. Botton was rebuilt and top end was remanufactured only 50K ago. It is coming in a parts car that I am going to strip. The body is shot only some trim okay interior is very good. Motor is ready to drop into another car.

Anyway what is the engine worth?

Cheers,

Shawn

I owned an 88 that had the e engine. The "super eta" already had the i head, albeit with weaker valve springs and only a 5500 rpm redline.

If it's a 2.7e with a done up head, then maybe it's worth something if it's a race engine.
Or at least full i specs with a valvetrain that can take 7,000+ rpm's comfortably.
In that case, I might just buy it.
