GovDeals 8.3 Engines in TX

Anyone in TX looking for a couple 8.3's?
I'd be all over this if I had any way to haul em, store em, or move em.

Huh, well that was before I'd had any coffee.
They're on GovDeals though.

One of these would be cool in a shorty, but I'd rather stick to my DT466 unless I'm really upgrading.

If I had the money or the skill, it would be real purdy in my bus. I wouldn't even know where to start or how to get it to talk to the md3060...

The 5.2 is a chrysler of some sort. Not sure if it's a magnum or la though. Something like this I'd be sure to inspect before buying. The 5.2 looks new/reman'd, however the one cummins I see looks used.

There are two 8.3's... pictured above.
One on a green pallet and one on a wood pallet.
I didn't look at the 5.2 but figured it was an isuzu unit.
