Well, I bid on 2 engines. A 6.6 duramax and a 7.3 International IDI.
Here's the duramax. Duramax Engine
I need a duramax turbo for a $400 core credit the shop owes, so I figured if I could get an entire engine for a few hundred, I could remove the turbo, resell the engine, and be money ahead. It looked to be in poor shape, so I was really optimistic my plan would work out. That went for $900
and needless to say, I wasn't the high bidder.
Here's the International. International Engine
I needed this for the exhaust manifold and turbo mock up. So my bus will be apart/disabled for very little time. I bought this for 200 bucks which is about what I thought it would be worth. I might rebuild it for if/when my current engine loses it's head gaskets with the power increase.
