    Looks like a gen 3 to me based on those valve covers. An earlier gen 3 (03-04) based on the block not having the mounts for knock sensors as well.

    Looks like June 2003
    The 12 segments around the 3 are filled in depending on the month of casting

    Hard to say on worth. Over in Europe they are far less common, so they could be worth more to someone over there looking to fix a broken car. I recently had a car finder contact me for a client in Sweden that was looking for Viper engines to fix some cars that were broken, but I have no idea what generation they were. You might look around and see if anyone has parts for sale over there to get an idea of the market.
