Default Good price on an STI motor with 30k on it

A friend of my friend wrecked his sti the other night and is parting it out..... it has about 30,000 miles on the motor, i was thinking about buying the motor and tranny from him.. maybe make it a project down the road for my car.

i was just wondering though what a steal would be for the motor?

if i offered him $2,000 would that be low balling or what?

offer him a $1000 for the tranny?

what do you guys think?

its a local so cal car, he was driving and lost control. rear end smacked up against a tree, frame damage FTL....

thats a hell of a steal for motor and tranny. tranny especially.

if he doesnt know what the value of the parts are technically its not lowballing since its a legit offer on your part.
