How much do you have invested in it? Take that # and cut it in half and that may be close to selling price. Not many people will by a completed engine built by an individual that they don't know. Not saying you don't know what you are doing, But someone on Ebay may think this. Its hard to sell high performance unless you are well known.

I sold a Lingenfelter Built 496 that had 10,000 miles on it for $2500 US. I had the build sheet, balance data, and dyno pulls, validating the motor. To buy this motor from his still operating company would approach $10,000 today, but I'm not sure how your built motor would compete with his name and reputation, tho he is deceased.
