Should I Sell or finish Build?

I have a (1998) 4.6 4v engine custom built with vortech supercharger, would it be easier to just sell the engine off and sell my truck (with no engine), or finish the build im not a mechanic but am not too bad. ive got about 4 months to do it before i move. The engines a cast iron block, sean hyland rotating assy with .020 overbore, comp cams for nitros and blower assys, rebuilt heads with new springs and valves, built by a local shop and a rebuilt supercharger. i dont really even know what to ask for the engine, or the truck body/frame. any help would be greatly appreciated, im actually in iraq right now.

If I were you I would be ringing a friend and have him get some quotes o have the work done so you can return to a complete and working truck worth much more than selling bits of it .

Do you have a good reason for selling it (eg need the cash bad or want to do another project) if not I'd be inclined to finish it off so you can enjoy it for a while .

What model truck is it?

Re: Should I Sell or finish Build?

Its a 98 cobra engine, into a 98 f150. I really dont know anyone else in california where its at. I have to drive it back to Illinois or sell it in june.
i dont know how much more it will cost to get it running since ive never even heard of it being done before, with the DOHC in a f150. Or if it will be giving me problems all the time, and its also my only vehicle.
