Value of a dead 2.5

I have two 2.5 motors in my garage. One is known to be dead and has all of the accessories still attached. The other was sold to me as a good long block, but for purposes of this thread, I'll assume it is bad too. What are they worth if anything? Any input is valued.

Contact Jake Raby at Flat Six Innovations. I'm betting he'd buy both of them from you and then you'll know what they're worth. He takes 'em and bores them out and makes them bigger, badder, and bullet proof.

I paid $150-350 for dead or unknown m96 engines
Usually costs another $200 or so to ship them

Most end up scrap metal
