What's a good price for a Duratec 2.3L

Eventually I'd like to drop a 2.3 in my ZX5, but I need to know what to expect to pay for one to budget accordingly. If someone can help me out, that'd be great!

EDIT: Sorry if I put this in the wrong forum.

I've seen 23 motors go for $750. to $1350. I don't know the mileage or condition of them. Just to ask, What is a 23 that just flipped 60,000 miles & has a BSD, a set of crane cams, udp's & I've used Mobil 1 in it since day one be worth?

More than I can afford at the moment, LOL.
I saw a rebuilt 2.3 for $2500, I assumed that was too high and went here for an opinion. My 20 is almost to 100k. How long do these things last?

Yea, thats too high for just an engine in my opinion. I know its rebuilt but it probably isn't modified is it? For alittle more you could get an entire Foci with a 23 already in it lol. And I've been told they will last very long if you treat them right. They are reliable engines. I'm at 150k and have no intentions on getting another car until after college. At that point I should be at, or just above 200k and I have complete confidence in my engine.
