What would this be worth?

Hey there guys, I am chasing some extra performance out of my ED's 302, and I can get the following parts for 2 grand:
AU XR8 GTP heads 200 kw spec (used)
new lower manifold
used upper manifold
Also comes with injectors (orange), fuel rail and throttle body.

I guess what I am asking, is this a fair price for these items?

Re: What would this be worth?

IMO, its a little rich. The heads are worth around $1000, I believe the 200kw heads are just stock GT40P's, 220kw ones have porting and larger valves and are probably worth another couple of hundred if you can actually find them. The upper and lower manifold would be worth somewhere around $500-600, and the throttle body another $200-300 (65mm AU type). The orange fuel injectors and the fuel rails are exactly the same specs as you already have, so will just be spares.

Re: What would this be worth?

if this helps you can buy brand new alloy heads upper and lower manifold, cam, gasgets and new timing chain for 3k it on a standard 5.0l motor will produce 350hp or 262kw but to acheive this you need a larger t/b larger maf 26p injectors decent headers and somthing else ill find it and post it so all in all its a fair gain for the price sp 4k for parts. hope it helps

Re: What would this be worth?

Probably a little on the high side, but not unreasonably so. See if the heads comes with rockers, and if so, what ratio (roller ?) - this could make them ok value if they have 1.7 rr's included.

If you are thinking about it, and have a definite budget, don't forget all the incidentals that will drive up your costs a lot.
e.g. Gaskets, Head Bolts, plugs, extractors (stockers won't work with gt-40p's). Just for gaskets, bolts and plugs your probably looking at an additional $400.....
