Probably 1800. I can get an EF 5.0 for 1000, so i would say the TE series 1 would be between 1500 and 1800, depending on condition and k's

You talking EL XR8? - no.

GT40p heads, Explorer Manifold, Roller Rockers.

The XR8 had E7 heads or something like that...

Im sure he meant the AU. el was 185kw.

A set of gt40p heads are $650 new from Yella Terra, a explorer manifold with tb and injectors are worth about $600ish, Roller Rockers are about 550ish new, the rest is the same as the HO.

I reckon around 2 grand would be a fair price.

Ive confirmed the TE50 through a number of people here. Estimated KMs would be under 100000, The builders plaque is with a previous owner who confirmed that he had it yesterday.
