Rebuilding a drowned 3800 Series III

My brother and I have the opportunity to get a series III 3800 out of a 2005 Grand Prix. The entire car was totally submerged in the flood waters that flooded parts of New Orleans. I know there is water in the cylinders and that all the computers and sensors are fried.

We are wondering if it would be practical to rebuild the engine to install into my brother's '02 Monte Carlo. What do you think it would cost (ballpark figure) to rebuild it?

We honestly don't have any idea as where to begin, any help is appreciated.
