I have the motor and transmission out of a 1997 Camaro that my friend built as a v6 race car.

Motor was rebuilt around 2006/2008, but has less than a full hour of runtime on it.
He never finished the car enough to actually drive it on the road.
It was only moved around a driveway after motor was installed and then he moved away and it sat for several years. Motor and trans are still in the car.

I do not have any paperwork on the rebuild though.
If you provide a non-refundable deposit, I will gladly open up the engine so you can see the bottom end or I will even pull off the heads and intake. However, it will be the buyers responsibility to reassemble and that includes the buyer buying any gaskets that would need to be replaced from opening stuff up. For the buyers protection, If the motor looks like a 100k mile motor once opened you would get your deposit back obviously, I'm not trying to scam anyone.

The engine has long tube headers, electric water pump, SLP cold air intake, aftermarket plug wires, and tuned w/HP tuners.
I know the Internal balance shaft was removed when the motor was rebuilt by R&L in westwood NJ(out of business now). I transported the engine to and from the machine shop for my friend years ago.

The current 4l60e trans I know only a little about as well, but I was told it was upgraded with better servos and supposedly has a shift kit. He bought it from another V6 racer out of Virginia around 2006 and it came with its owns torque converter. That's all I know.

The motor trans combo includes the following:
Complete 3.8l engine from oil pan to throttle body
coil packs and wires
engine accessories(power steering pump/res, alternator, electric water pump)
SLP cold air intake
long tube headers
4l60e w/converter
Tuned pcm w/engine wiring harness

$1000 for all that.

Additional items from the car are available and could be included for a small additional cost.
I have an engine hoist to aid in loading.

I would sell motor and transmission separate. in that case:
motor $850
transmission: $300

Been asking around but it looks like the supercharged version of this engine is the one in demand. If everything is rebuilt as claimed , this is a very good buy, but unfortunately most people that I speak with want the SC engine. You might want to try putting it on Craigs list or eBay but be prepared to pallet everything up and ship.
