Never mind i just re read your question.

Go to a website called www.442.com

there are some prices on some 455 olds that might help you when you sell your engine. I like the engines but i already own one.

Just as a point of reference, I bought my Olds 455 running w/ tranny two years ago and gave $600 for it. After running it for a while. I rebuilt the entire shooting match. I currently have about $1500 investd in it and I am not sorry.

Cool

a few points to consider, you know the cost of the parts and machine work if you add the cost of the stock motor itself, whatever one would go for in your area. adding these things up will give you a ballpark idea of what its worth. from there you can decide what you want to sell it for.anything is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. hope this helps.

if you think you can get what you have into it back out of it, it aint gonna happen. add up all your costs and multiply by .75, then ask between that and half and you might get lucky and get more than half of what you spent. i'll do the math: spent=1G, ask 750 and dont take less than 500. but 500 is not bad. if you ask 1000 you'll never get it unless somebody just has the hots for it like it's rare or hard to find or their car just blew up. there's an ad in the paper for a complete 1955 truck for 400 last week, this week it's down to $300. i need a hood and i'll pay 200 but i down want to have to take the whole truck to get it so i'm not interested.

just curious, what did it cost for all the parts and the work?

i have a 455 sitting in the back that i thinki may fix up and throw in my Omega, but I have heard that parts for it are a lot more expensive then parts for an Olds 350, inproportionatley more. (wow.. big word in case we have any Floridians in here, that means a lot more money and not a lot more power )

The bit more that it is is worth paying. And a lot of parts are the same for SB BB olds. look in Jegs you'll see the diffrence in prices.

yeah, i have seen the prices, but wasn't sure about the performance difference. i have heard that basically the extra weight (over the Olds 350) cancels out most of the benefit it gets from the extra displacement, but that doesn't seem reasonable to me..
