    I'll respond to your post in the Maxx NY/NJ tune thread here since it's more relevant. There is not a clear mileage to price correlation in these cars like that is in newer cars. It's more about the overall condition of the car, it's records, history, paint, VIN #s, mods, etc. 9k for a 12x,000 mile car is probably resonable. That is considered low mileage for a 17-18 year old car and you probably won't need a rebuild. A total rebuild will cost lots of $, more than you want to spend (~15k). From what I've seen, most bottom ends will last until a rod is spun at the track. I honestly can't remember an engine that has has spun a bearing or broken a timing chain or thrown a rod or lost compression when driven on the street, though I'm sure it's happened. Usually the head gets worn around 150-180k and will benefit from a rebuild. Good luck with the sale and PM any questions you want.

    EDIT: I didn't put that smiley in the header and can't get rid of it
