    Weber Engine Value

    I have a chance to buy a new Weber engine that was for the Sugar Sand boats, It looks identical to the MSX 150 engine but is rated at 135. Could anyone put a value on this engine? It is complete with the innercooler and oil tank, ECT.

    The MSX 150 engine was also rated about the same 135HP - the 150 was just a marketing number

    $1,500 would be a fair deal. I have bought over 6 Weber turbocharged engines, both marine and snowmobile versions, and I have never paid above 1,500 for a complete unit. You need to be patient.

    I just completed building a brand new hybrid (marine and snowmobile) Weber engine. All new parts. The whole setup costs me around $3,000. I started with a brand new FS snow engine and put many marine internal parts and accessories. I now have a recent engine case with problem free nicasyl plating, Inconel exhaust valves (snow version) and beefier pistons (again snow version). This engine runs awesome in my MSX and is much more rugged than the previous MSX version. Very cool and should last a long time.

    The only advice I would give is to go for an engine block manufactured after 2005. I would not invest a lot of money on 2003 or 2004 engine blocks because of the associated plating issues.

    Good luck.

    Are 2005 Weber engine blocks in the good or not so good category?
