Well, I just got off the phone with the criminals at the local salvage yard... They want <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> $2500 <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> for the engine and tranny combo with ***everything***. (That's computer, harness, all brackets and accessories, carbon cannister, fuel evap crap, oxygen sensors, everything--and believe me, if I go for it I'm gonna make sure I get EVERYTHING.)

The guy says it breaks down like this : Engine - $1250, Tranny - $850, Accessories and extra crap - $500.

For anyone who missed my previous post, the engine/tranny are out of a 98 'burban with about 60K miles...

So am I getting screwed here or is that a fair price...?

Thanks,

My buddy just had a LT1, out of a 98 Camaro put in his 70 Blazer...It ended being around $4 large all said and done...I'm not sure if he got screwed or not, but all of the little sensors, and wiring that didn't come with the engine really nickled and dimed him.
He payed 1200 for the engine (30K on it).

As stated in the last post, that is what they go for around here. I think it's worth it.

Yeah, you can get a crate motor for close to that, but I don't think they come with all the accessories, wiring, and sensors.

Just make sure you get everything and try to talk them down to 2k.

I've been calling other yards around here and they've been saying they'd only charge anywhere from 1400 to 1800 for the same thing... They just don't have any in right now... I don't know. Some yards want even more. I'm gonna keep looking.

Thanks,

well seeing that they diden't put a vortec 5.7 in untill 96 and the 4l60e wasn't till arround 92-93, I'd say your getting screwed, cause your getting a tbi 350 and a 700r4, not a bad combo, but its not a vortec 5.7, and personally I'd rather have the 700r4 over the 4l60e, then you don't have the wiring nightmare for the tranny too. so just a little chevy info, the tbi motor was run in trucks fron 87 to 95, the 700r4 from mid 80's to early 90's and 4l60/4l60e through the 90's, and the 700r4 and 4L60 are basically the same tranny except for the electronic shift for the 4L60e and the tv cable on the 700r4.
