If you are going to rebuild one, budget at least $1500
The 3800 motor is not a cheap to rebuild motor. The gaskets, bearings, and rings will cost you close to $500.
A commercially remanufactured motor runs about $1200 for N/A to $1600 for SC in a long block form.
On a tight budget, a salvage yard motor from a wrecked H-Body is the cheapest route to replacing the motor.
