Why bother? Small displacement. A 5.3 is small enough.

Because 2.1 redblock equivalents isn't enough. Must have 2.3 redblocks...

It's a rare engine but I've seen a few in the yards over the years.

All we get here is skinny rod b230fs:(

Occasionally big rod motors and occasional big rod turbo motors. But rare.

Come to think of it, I should probably pull a few of those..

Always pay attention to whats around you. I was at a pick n pull with flat rate prices, alloy wheels are $80 for a set of 4. A Porsche 944 with Fuchs rims was there, so I grabbed them and easily resold them for $600.
haha true on both-

My pick and pull called me floor mat man. Early 2000's Id pull any nice carpet or rubber volvo mats. I stockpiled until I had stacks, I think I had 75-80 at one point, Id buy all that came in and weren't torn up. Was paying $1 each (or less) and selling them for 80-120 set depending on condition.

nice to get spare relays for free.

Scored a set of 17" fat lip Racing dyamics wheels for $80 off an old 5 series and sold them for $1000 From the same car
Got Mtech rear spoiler for $25 and sold it for like $500
and Mtech wheel also sold for a couple hundred. That was a great day

Also got a Saab 900 turbo Carlson kit and the extended whaletail spoiler, think I got about $1200 for that all together

But I always walk the euro/import section and just see whats there, and rarer models look for cool parts that dont come on the base cars, quick ebay search to see what its worth and boom.

Used to check for aftermarket speakers also. Oem corner and tail lights if they are recent replacements, but honestly pnp prices dont leave as much room as they used to

You never know what you can find. Some days, I'm not even looking for anything specific. Today I picked up a rebuilt turbo, Porsche vdo oil pressure gauge and clock, magnaflow muffer(random mustang).

98-2000 era Toyota sienna mini van electric fans fit the 240 rad really well, are 3 speed and move a lot of air. One of mine is in the third car since I pulled it.
Charcoal canisters from ford trucks (9th-10th gen??.?). They are way nicer packaging wise than the volvo ones. They fit anywhere.
ANY good 5 panel tail lights.
240 trunk poppers
Factory roof racks. Found an early 240 one with volvo cast in the legs on a camry in an import yard once.
One day I'm going to find a set of 240 single round headlight wipers, I just know it.....One day......

Check eBay prices, I usually don't sell gauges but they could be worth something.
