Rich,

I can't answer your question directly but I have some thoughts.

If it is just the filter that is scratched, you may not need a new sensor. It is my understanding that when cameras are converted to IR the filter is replaced. Take a look at this tutorial form Life Pixel

http://www.lifepixel.com/tutorials/infrared-diy-tutorials/nikon-d3x

In fact there website indicates they do scratched filter replacement.

Edit: However, I don't see D3s in their dropdown menu for camera choice.
