My son (cshack) found an engine & drug home. It's what appears to be a fairly new mopar V8. It has an intake that looks like a LS1 gm (plastic with crossovers & a place for a throttle body). but has the mopar symbol & 4.3 or 4.6 cast in it. what does he have? is it good for any thing?

other than re-selling it, its probably useless without the PCM and harness to go with it. can you post some pics of it ?

I'll see about the picts. I just was reminded that a valve cover & the oil pan are missing. He found it sitting in a field & hauled the pos home. I told him he'll might get stuck with fees to dump it, now. Rolling Eyes Sad

if someone just dumped a late model engine in a field, theres a good chance the vehicle it came out of was stolen.

I dunno what level of mechanics he is at, but I know when I was 15 or so I would drag home all sorts of blown up engines and transmissions to explore in...

I figured why risk ruining a good engine by digging around in it... If its already blown apart and free I cant lose. Sure enough one of those old blocks and a grenaded C6 shell came in handy setting my car up...

If he is way beyond that, then he may find a market for some of the remaining parts on good old eBay?

Good point on helping the learning curve & great Idea on selling the parts off, I'll let him know about that one.
