how much does a 6.0 engine cost?

how much is a new 6 liter motor? ive heard somewhere around $13000 for a new one but that is including labor. im just curious because some guy is selling one on craigslist for $5500 and im wondering if this is some kind of crazy good deal.

bradyracing is starting off with a positive reputation.
5,500 for a new one on craigslist? You can buy used ones on Ebay for under 4,500.

BigRy is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I have seen complete 6.0 longblock engine, with turbo sell for 8,000.00 for the motor alone, not including labor. I thought it was a decent deal and it was full rebuilt. I have also seen a new one sell for 11,999.00, but I think that was motor, accesories, turbo, and all electronics.

I'm in the process of building one now I called around to several places and for the most part they run $5500 for a rebuilt short block and $8000-$12000 for the rebuilt long block. I called ford and they wanted 15,000 for the long block version 1 I think. They don't sell a short block they have 2 versions of long blocks. That was also a rebuilt. I can't remember what a new one was but it was high. These were including core charge. I got mine used with 30,000 miles for ,$4500 shipped. It's complete motor from fan to fly wheel turbo to oil pan. By the time I get done doing what I'm doing to it and actually get it in the truck running it's going to cost me $10,000 total.

Is it worth rebuilding your own motor or is that a job best left to a professional rebuilder?

What is the core short or long block worth?

Depends on where you buy the engine as to how much it is worth. And as far as rebuilding the engine your self I guess that depends on what kind of mechanic experience you have. I my self grew up doing this kind of stuff so I like to do it. Granted I was mainly working on tractors and older craberated engines, but I beleave I know enough between what I learned as a tech and what I have learned here.
