What will my 3 be worth (new motor)... ?

Due to unforeseen events, my motor is blown in my car and since I'm still in college and don't have a job (athlete at school... no extra time for work) I don't want to be sitting on the costs of a new motor that will be getting installed within the next week. Here's the details...

2006 Mazda3 Hatchback GT w/ 5 speed
~116k miles
Titanium grey in color with stock 5 spokes, black in color (plasti-dip)
Outside is roughly a 7-8, some scratches here and there, tiny chips on hood/roof from previous owner and winter commutes everyday
Interior is a solid 9, I've kept it in good shape, leather (upholstery, if you want) is in great condition, no tears, no creases. Carpet/floor mat in good shape, no stains or tears there either.
New motor will have about 30,000 miles on it and it being installed by my dad and a friend of his who works with engines quite a bit.

Bought the car in the fall of 2010 for about $9.5k, just curious as to what it might be worth with a newed engine.

value of the car wont change much if at all. what matters is miles on the chasis, since that is what goes on the title.

if you sell it privately it might help you secure a sale or w/e... dealers wont care.
