This is my opinion .. As Boss252 mentioned, a new 871/intake system is 4000 (or less if you're in the business). So, I'd guess the value to be 1500-2000 each. Then since they are used it would be smart to send them back to The Blower Shop for freshening. That bill could be 800-1000 each no problem.
If it was me buying, I'd have to get them for 1500 ea. to make it worth my while to spend 1000 ea. for freshening and end up with rebuilt blowers for 2500 a side.
Used Superchillers are a gamble, if the core lets go it could really cost you. I would not pay more than 800 for one when new can be found for around 2k
Again, used carbs/linkage?? I'd rather buy new and know what I've got. You'll need to get into them anyway to jet fror your application. I'd value the carbs/linkage at 800-1000
So this is what I feel the stuff would be worth to me..

Blowers 3000/pair
Superchillers 1600/pair
Carbs/linkage 800/all
Total 5400.00

Even if you could buy it all for 5400 does it really make sense? You still need to spend @2k for freshening.

Sometimes it just makes more sense to find your best deal and buy new.

And that's my opinion
