    Depends on how nice the shell is and what exactly is wrong with the engine.

    yeah I would say it is. Anything you can get running and is decent looking for $1000 or less is pretty good in my opinion.

    you need to find out exactly what is wrong with that motor... I just sold a motor that had been running extremely hard before a b16 swap for $100... you should not want to pay more than $200 if its beat to hell and needs a full overhaul (new pistons to new LMA's)... that would be me though.

    $300 for a blown motor is too much. if it's bad, it's only worth $100 or so.

    You do realize we're talking about a D16 here, right? It's not exactly a monster engine...
