I haven't seen too many sales of early 930s with replacement engines to benchmark, but as a rule of thumb I've seen other air cooled 911s that have a year/model correct replacement engine sell for 10-20% less than a matching numbers car. As others mentioned there's the incorrect tail and perhaps other items (eg flat rather than snorkel headlight washers) that will add to this, but on the flip side you probably will get some premium for viper green as a rare color.

So I'm guessing if everything else checks out you might be pretty close to a numbers matching 3.0L 930 in comparable condition (e.g. respray, some non-original parts) in a more common color (silver/red/black). Might not break $100K but wouldn't surprise me if you're patient and found somebody who really wanted a VG 930 if it got pretty close ($80-100K).
