Default What my 2009 LS3 Short Block worth?

Hi guys,

Have a question.

Back in 2011, I bought a LS3 short block out of a 2009 Vette with only 2,400 miles on it. I was lucky enough to actually see it in the car before it was removed. The owner was going with a supercharged 427.

I installed it in my car, a 2001 Camaro SS M6, using the Lingenfelter converter box, added some TEA ported LS3 heads, a TSP cam, LS3 Intake, melling oil pump, etc.... The engine has never seen nitrous or boost.

I bought a Huron Speed T4 AC Turbo kit in the recent group purchase and will be installing that later this year.

I'm contemplating 2 choices:

1 - Rebuild my current short block for boost.

2 - Buy a new GM LS3 block and build a new short block from the ground up and sell my current short block.

I only put about 4,000 miles on my LS3 short block since I installed it in my car, (my car only has 19,xxx miles on it, yes only 19K)

My car is never driven in rain or snow so the short block still looks new.

With about 6,500 miles on the short block, what is a good running, low mileage LS3 short block worth these days?

I sold a freshly stock rebuilt 6.2 L92 shortblock for $2000 plus shipping. No valvetrain.
