If the car is in immaculate condition and he manages to find a low mileage engine form another ZHP, $14k is realistic. That said, it seems unlikely that someone that can't scrape together enough to replace an engine is driving an otherwise immaculate ZHP.

After engine replacement, a better estimate is probably $10-$11k. It's highly unusual for a well maintained m54b30 to die at 90k miles.
