What would a fair price for a fresh never run 454 Magnum? ...sitting with valves closed and assembly lube only since 2005. Roller cam approx 425 h.p.

It was built by a reputable shop. ...just need to get it here since it is out of state.

intake to pan, no exhaust, carb or other accessories.

Thanks,
Jay

Long block I would say about $2500 since she is not exactly "fresh" and warranty would be out of state, etc.

Hey, if the price is right ( of course! ) and the engine is in good shape, I could be interested. What are details, ie specs, hours, etc? Send me a PM.

dawg,

Maybe my post wasn't that clear but I am the one looking for an engine and one came up for sale. ...zero hours like I said older rebuild never run.


It is a 454 Mag spec Pro topline heads, roller cam reported to be 420 H.P. +/-

chinese metal casting of any alloy is ALWAYS suspect :shocking:

actually I think they are New Zealand or maybe Aussie heads. These are Pro Topline heads and the engine was assembled back in 2004.

thoughts? edit: yes I agree with chinese castings etc. being suspect.

Thanks,
Jay

Again I think price is pretty darn high and I would want somebody local in case it grenades at startup due to a bad??????
