Whats my engine worth? (RMS/Built motor)

Hey everyone,
Was wondering if i could get some figuring out what my engine is worth. Its a great setup i have had a lot of fun with it but I am currently getting more in to track type stuff and would like to switch back to some sort of NA setup. i will get the motor compression/leak down tested in this week or the next and make sure the motor is completely healthy. Here are the specs on what i got, the kit Is and RMS stage 3. I would like to sell everything that goes with s/c kit plus the motor head and all. Im wondering what a fair price to offer all this at.

S54 3.2 liter i-6 stroked to 3.4 liters with custom CP pistons and rings (9.5:1 compression), Eagle lightened and shaved rods, ported and polished head with three-angle valve job on Ferrara valves and springs, Axiom Tuning titanium retainers, Vortech V2 supercharger system, air-to-water aftercooler with front-mount heat exchanger with Bosch water pump,Ignition Solutions plasma coils, six secondary RC440 injectors with Split Second AIC1 injector controller, Split Second PSC1 for fuel tuning

Thanks for the help!
-matt

As much as it pains me to say it, knowing what I have into my M3.. in most cases aftermarket parts are worth about 1/2 what they msrp at when sold used, only exception would be maybe brembo/stoptech brakes which seem to hold their value a bit better. Engine building has a lot of labor involved, so maybe the motors worth a little more than half, but then again that depends on mileage and primary use.

Its putting around 500 whp and i cant remember the exact torque figure but i believe its was around 375. The thing is i bought the car with the motor and the rms s/c kit so i dont really know the exact amount that was put in to it. i can get a rough estimate with the parts, but i don't exactly know the true cost with labor and such.
