Hi guys, this is a bit of a tricky question. Friend has an FD with a blown engine. Got 93,000kms on it. The engine let go in a cloud of smoke apparently, cranks but doesn't fire. He's left the car to sit for a while now but realizes he has to move it one way or another.

He's contemplating whether it's worth going through the hassle of sending an FD with a dead engine to Oz. What complications will there be moving it about port and loading etc. Basically it's a clean car, faded red but no repair history. Very original condition. '94 model FD type R (fitted with twin oil coolers), what's it worth in OZ, as is? And for comparison, with a used motor in her of reasonable condition?

Worth 8-10k now but fix it 10-15k easy.

If you rebuild the engine and its in good overall condition you'd probably get 20k

there are a few 94 fd on carsales here going for 18k as lowest so with a working engine anything from 18-20k is as much youll get but think about it, fixing it up then sending it to oz you probably wouldnt make much of a profit if any at all. Kinda a hassle if you know wat i mean
