If it has CIS it's not an RS motor. The RS ran much wilder cams than CIS can support, and ran MFI. Worse fuel economy and emissions; much better throttle response and power.

Still, a 2.7 is a 2.7. The value depends on a whole lot of variables, like how much rust is in the car (immediately discount any claims of "NO RUST"; these cars rusted on the boat coming over from Germany!), the condition of the motor, what kinds of parts were used in the conversion, and so on.

A total rustbucket is probably worth a couple of grand for parts. Maybe a bit more if it has 914-6 heat exchangers and some other harder-to-find parts. A nice driver is probably worth $15-25K, while a really-done-well conversion can be in the $50K range.
