    so i went junk yard hopping, for a place that has 40-50 cb7's, no joke, really that many. i was in heaven, i went shopping wrote down a list of what i wanted, a6 conversion parts, found a dc header and full exhaust, fuel rails, cams, cam gears, alot of these looked brand freakin new.....so i go up to the dude to buy the parts with a huge smile on my face and a fist full of cash. the dude says to me "you have to buy the motors from those cars to get those parts, $400 each" WTF!!!!! oh man i was so pissed. he wouldn't eve let me take the header and exhaust off....ugh...so fustrated... i argued, pleaded, and just about begged.... he had about as many cb7's as there were other cars combined...i wanna mention his name and say plenty of bad things, but im not going to go there....

    A junk yard that is going to charge me $400 for a motor is one that I would stay away from completely anyway.

    Sux man.

    they don't part motors unless the engine is junk...they'll just sell the accessories off them (alt/distributor/AC comp/ect)


    take the fuel rail off and now you've got holes for water to get in...so now you've lost $400 to make $20 on a rail...people/shops don't want motors missing shit and they won't let you swap the parts out becasue you might fuck up the motor (then they sell it and it comes back under warranty...and they have to deal w/the douche customer who doesn't understand what "used" really means)



    thats how it works (former employee)

    Yup its the same deal around here. We have a yard that has mostly intact cars that you have to buy the whole motor. And right across the street they have a you-pull-it type of yard where you can pull all the rusted pistons and cranks you want.
