I'm with CG. Triple webers is worth more on the open market.

I'm pretty sure he should be paying you. Before I bought my RB I had multiple price quotes for the L28et for $700-$1000 for the whole engine.

A set of triple webers+intake is $1750 from MSA if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah I'm thinking the same now.  I saw about that same price on theZstore today.  I knew that the L28et was more rare than the N/A but I didn't know what that stuff would be worth all together for it.  Anyways I think I'll pass on the trade now.  Thanks for the info!

Try to get current market prices for those items used. My idea of value on those is a few years old but the webbers would be worth more than just "some" parts from the turbo L28


Thank you Ted!

It's also a old technology turbo likely well used. Expect it to be worn out and you are only getting the rest for the price.

Hey guys! I just wanted to update my thread since I haven't updated anything in awhile and wanted to share with everyone.

 

So I started out by cutting out the rust out under the battery tray including the tray itself.  Then I welded in some sheet metal (I know my welding skills aren't the best so go easy on me haha)

After all that I cleaned up the engine bay, sanded it all down and sprayed it, here's an oic!
