This engine came with a truck that I recently purchased. The owner was going to do a conversion and came up short on funds.

It is a from a 2006 3500 with ~115k miles complete with the wiring harness. The donor truck side swiped a mountain. The engine had delo 400 run in it from new. The engine will be located in Nashville, Tennessee in a few weeks and then a month or so later in Colorado.

I am asking $6,000 shipped (OBO) in the Continental (sorry Hawaii and Alaska). If you would like to pick it up, that can be arranged as well.

I have a dealin pending, but wanted to make sure everyone knew this is complete from the pan to the turbo - completely drop in ready. If you don't need the extra stuff, pay me and then part out what you don't need.

And no I will not part any of it - all or none.

Had a couple PMs asking if I would sell it outside of the auction. The answer is yes and it is still $6,000 shipped or best offer outside of the auction. And to the follow up question - no I will not sell it for $4,000 shipped. Yes I know $4,000 is my minimum on the auction, but no I won't end the auction for less...

Hope that is clear.

Lots of lookers and watchers but no serious offers... Is it the economy?

yes. 6000 is quite a bit of cash. Especially since you can buy a decent used truck for the price. 2 years ago it would have been gone.

I kinda figured... I thought that the price was a smoking deal based on everything that is included. I have had offers for just the ECM, turbo, and heads which add up to about 75% of the starting bid... The cheapest I can find a comparable engine is ~$5k and it doesn't come with the ECM, turbo, etc... Guess I will just wait and see what happens with the auction. There are plenty of people looking at it and about 20 people watching the auction. Guess everyone is hoping that they are the only bidder at $4,000...

Less than 2 days left on the auction. I will sell the engine outside the auction - but once the first bid is placed the auction will run it's course.

T Minus 24 hours... Still no bids - who wants to be first?

I will offer a $200 discount to the first person to bid if they are the winning bidder.

T Minus 6 hours... Still no bids. The cheapest way to buy this engine is going to be bid $4,000 (minimum) and win.

Your total will be $3,800 plus shipping.

Sam
(Obviously you should understand I am hoping you don't win it for $4,000)

I won't be selling the engine for less than $4,000. Less than 50 minutes left guys.

Who knew the auction could be this nerve wracking...
