Depends on the extent of damage. Have you seen the insides? Most of these motors are from light duty pickup trucks and are not four bolt. A broken crank can really screw up the mains.

I would offer $125.00-150.00, I usually get the two bolt buildable cores for less than $75.00. Because the heads are usually cracked. But, if it is low milage and the heads are good you won't lose. The bone yard won't offer anything over weight value..

You can pick up a good late model vortec core for $100.00 all day long (GM core charge). Contact your local GM Dealer and ask someone in the parts dept. for an independent repair shop that recently purchased an engine. If you buy it from the dealer they will charge sales tax.

Thought I'd follow up my last post with a picture of my Chevy 5.7 Liter Vortec core. Hope the picture shows.

Yes it is. Anything after 1996 uses the Vortec heads.
