Hello. My name is Tan.

This is a 2000 model year M9.8. The value is the same for all models of the 9.8.

I can give you the NADA book value in the market and you can go from there with it. Average retail is $550.00.

Being in excellent condition you could price it at around $1,000.00 and go from there with offers. Anything used is going to be worth about half the original purchase price. This is with 1 hour of run time on the engine. It's like a car soon as you drive it the value goes down.

Here is the NADA link to your motor.

This is just the market value someone buying the engine might pay more than market due to condition.
