LS6 shortblock + heads

LS6 from '02 Z06.
engine broke a valve spring and dropped the valve, damaged the piston and head.
the damage to piston is cosmetic, but would need replaced. the head will need 1 intake valve, and 1 valve seat replaced. the block looks great. has some VERY minor scuffs, but should hone out with no problems. can send detailed picks via email or text. engine has 102K miles, didn't smoke, held great oil pressure, and was engine was shut off immediately after failure (didn't die, i pulled over and turned the car off.) the piston/pin is under $80 new from GM, valve is under $15 from GM, seat replacement is a common practice at a machine shop.
engine includes: timing cover, valley cover, oil pump, timing chain, lifters, lifter trays,and cam sensor. cam has been sold. heads 15 have Comp. Cams "918" springs.
i was going to build the engine to go back in the car, but decided to build a LS2 based 404 cu in engine instead. thanks!
$1100 + shipping. will negotiate if willing to pickup.

I was wondering what was going on too. With all the LSx builds out there, your parts were in high demand. Glad to see everything sold quickly when they finally did.

those parts selling helped greatly. i managed to kill my lawn mower, and used the money from the parts sales to buy a new mower.
