how the hell does that guy think that a vx motor will be worth $400??
i bet you guys could offer $150 and get it for $175 and even for that price it better be flawless. i just sold a d16z6 long block with wiring harness, bad tranny and mounts for $200
VX complete swaps are quite hard to come-by though, especially ones that run well, and from my experience in junkyards and looking all over the local internet ads, much harder to find than Z6 swaps. But I think you are right that he will probably end up selling this for about $200-300 depending on the right buyer.
Personally, I got kinda ripped off when I bought my 120k mile vx longblock and bad tranny for $250...but then again, the motor runs perfect, and inside it looks like it has 40k on it, so I can't really complain.
My friend who just picked up his vx will probably pick this up since he was talking about wanting a spare, and I don't see this selling fast on Honda-tech.
