Y Do contiques always get engines GUTTED in yard?
#1291984 - 08/02/06 02:46 PM

Everytime the yards in my area RECIEVE a Contique, the first thing to get gutted is the 2.5L engine, WTF!!! I need some parts from the engine and some wiseass (one of you guys ) takes the whole bloody thing. Btw, uh... I can get the engine and tranny for these cars $60 each right now, so if you guys are interested, please let me know. It'll be AS-IS but I can pull the engine and tranny for about $60 each... for people who know what yard i'm talking about, meet me there we'll help each other out .

Are you sure the yard is not pulling the engines out first?

My local yard almost never has a engine and tranny inside a Contique when I find them because they pull them out to sell complete.
