    My wife and I have been planning on starting the kito diet but haven't yet. I'm sure if I cut out all sugar and a lot of carbs it would help me out. I have been trying to stay away from fast food too.

    Back to the black pita.... This morning I went to the local pick n pull before work to get some injector connectors. I have a f body harness from a LS1 and I'm going to put it on my 5.3. The only thing really different are the injector connectors. So I'm at the pick and pull and decide I should just get another intake. Mine had one of the prongs to retain the map sensor broken off. This particular part is glued/bonded on the intake. Then I decided, hey, I might as well grab the fuel rails, and the injectors, with the map sensor too. I get to the counter to pay and the old man says put that in the corner and come back tomorrow. What you have will add up to be $200-$300 and tomorrow we're having a sale. What ever you can put in a wheel barrow for $100. I couldn't believe it. Their site says a complete intake is only $42. He told me that only includes the intake. The rails are $28ea, injectors $10ea, throttle body $40, map sensor $10, intake $42, and then there is a core on the intake. I told him there shouldn't be a core on a plastic intake. That pretty much ticked me off.

    I appreciate him trying to save me money for sure. I guess it's the whole shock of thinking you'll be getting something for one price and find out it triples when you go to pay for it. I don't know if I'll go back or not. I went out and cut some connectors off another truck because the ones I had from earlier are hooked on the intake that is now setting in the corner. Now I have to decide if I really need/want that stuff. Having spare injectors may be ok since they are pricey. I see how these places make their money now.

    I pondered over it last night and decided I would go back and I'd make the most of it. If I would have had more time I would have gotten an engine. Due to having to work 12s, that isn't an option.

    I did, however, get a good amount. I got 3 truck intakes. 2 complete with throttle bodies, all have the fuel rails, injectors, map sensors, and regulators. I got a set of coils, valve covers, rocker arms with stands, push rods, just to have. Then I got some sun visors and a couple trim pieces for my 95 F350. I got a tilt column, dash bezels, heat/ac control, some harness connectors, window switches and lock switches for my Dad's 91 F350. Last I got some heavy duty floor mats, a tail light for the excursion, and a push bar just because. I'd say I got my hundo's worth since they wanted $250 for that intake yesterday.

    A bigger wheel barrow would have been nice! I did see a 4cyl with trans in a wheel barrow outside waiting to get loaded in a pick up. I may have to find out when the next sale is. It might be worth going down and plucking a complete engine out. (You just have to have the time for that)

    They did have some rules. You had to bring everything in the wheel barrow through their lobby doors. Which are probably 5' wide. I did see some guys have 2 half ton rear axles, a radiator support, and a pile of small stuff out of 05 up F150s.

    considering they probably bought the parts at scrap prices and what you can put in a wheel barrel won't out weigh what they paid for it. I know where I work they give about $35. for an engine and $25 for trans.

    Yep, it's about the same over here Charlie.
    If you take a car (any car,) into our local wrecker (Barry Rickard,) he doesn't even get out of his chair to look at it.
    "Has it still got all the running gear in it; engine trans and axles?"
    "Yep."
    "$100."

    Take it or leave it. You're not going to get a penny more.

    Right now junk cars, or shred is only bringing $85/ton. I've got a few loads I need to get off the ground before Seth's weather sets in here.

    I was offered $500 for my P60 van with running 427 and Allison automatic. No way. I gave it to my brother in law for what I consider its scrap value - $1500.

    I just wanted it off the lawn.
