If you are rebuilding and selling to make a profit you had better be a reputable shop with at least some type of warranty on it (along with being able to get parts at wholesale or below). But if you were, you probably wouldn't be asking here or price shopping on ebay.

If you are looking to make a small amount of money, just part it out. The 7m is a very tempermental engine to build, especially when you are looking for higher than stock #'s. I'm not questioning your skills as an engine builder (well sort of) I'm just saying that there isn't much room for error with these engines, and unless you really know what you are getting into and all the in's and out's of the 7m it would be fairly hard for you to get back the money you put into it.

boring it out 40 thou is a bad idea, as if something goes wrong, new block time!!!

you WON'T get your return on investment with an upgraded engine. DO a stock rebuild and sell it...
