 While I know it won't be my final engine, I've nearly decided to go 
ahead with a turbo 180 motor for my 66 just for the experience. I 
already have a nice 180 engine, but it's missing the air cleaner, turbo, 
and carb. My brother has a nice setup that has been sitting in clean, 
dry storage for about 30 years. Externally it looks excellent, but I'm 
sure it will need a complete rebuild.

What's a fair market price for this hardware? I don't want to short my 
brother, and he doesn't really know.

The 180 turbo is just an interim, and I'll probably sell it when I'm 
done with it. First I need to just get the 110hp going again that is in 
the 66 now...#6 cylinder has an issue that might be anything from simple 
to very serious. Longer term I want to go with a 3+ liter engine in that 
car, probably non turbo. I've built quite a few Corvair engines, but 
they were all in the distant past. These days time is more a problem 
than money (worked an 80+ hr week the week before last...at age 60), but 
I generally only want it if I do it myself so things take me forever. I 
will, however, need to farm out machine work.
