Parting 2.5L Engine, 1997

Make an offer on any parts that are of use to you.

I'm clearing old parts from my garage and have a 2.5L 1997 engine that I'm going to haul away for scrap soon. It was still running when I drove the car into the garage to remove it, but likely has a cracked head and is worn from abuse and neglect.
If you want any parts let me know.
I am still planning to tear it down before I scrap it, so all bolts and internal parts can be available.
The block may be good to rebuild - no metal in oil and it did still run *with coolant in the exhaust and over-pressure in the coolant tank*.

***I'm also about to pull a 2001 2.7L with rod knock and metal in the oil. Parts from that available as well.***

Pics of how it is as of today:

Your 2.7 - Exhaust Manifolds

Are you willing to sell the exhaust manifolds from your 2.7? Do you know if the CATS are still good?

I'll get a look at some cats I already have removed. There may be a good pair. The 2.7L engine I'm about to remove actually has 996 headers and no cat.

I found a pair for a 2.7. These are probably off a a wrecked 2001 that I scrapped a few years ago and have been in storage. I have not tested them, but looking inside at the material, they look good.
Here's a picture of them:

Here's looking inside the left:
cat-L

...and right:
cat-r

For contrast, here's what my known bad one looks like:
cat-bad

I see them running on eBay for about $500 to $600 each. I'll do better than that. If you are interested, give me a shipping zip code and I'll figure a price.

I don't have a pair, I have two for the right side. There's an eBay seller I've used (and that used to be on the forum) that has a pair at a good price: https://www.ebay.com/itm/154800405401?

That will be a lot of fun with those small head bolts in the 97. Last time I tore down an engine like that I broke like 5 torx bits

For the 2001, do you have the AOS Breather tube? The one that runs from the AOS to the Throttle body?

Also interested in the passenger side headlight amber corner piece

The last engine I pulled didn't have the AOS tube, but I'll check in a few boxes tomorrow and see if I have one. I do have amber corners. I'll see if I can get one off the light without breaking it.

I probably have it all. Do you need a PS pump and alternator too?

Yes I need alt and PS pump . Is your car has a tiptronic in it , I need the shift cable. I also need the engine cooling fan and air breather housing. They are located in the vents on both sides of the car.

Dramabean, I have an AOS tube that's in good shape. The headlight corner isn't great and three tabs cracked when I removed it. I'm not going to try removing any others.

I'll sell the tube and corner for $30 shipped as pictured (except I put some superglue on the corner piece tabs, but I doubt it will hold).

Andre: I have a very busy week and it will take a few days for me to gather the parts you want and figure a price. I should have pictures and prices by Friday. Here's what I have gathered so far:



It includes the engine compartment fan, Vacuum reservoir, Tiptronic shift cable, hose from the AOS to the PCV valve, PS Pump, Alternator, power wires to starter and alternator, hose that connects to the oil cooler, and knock sensors.

Still plan to get: Crank case oil sensor, tail lights, seat backs-I have black leather, immobilizer+DME set, oil filler tube, dip stick, change-over valves for vacuum system, and more.

Thanks for doing business! Perchance do you have one of the foam gutters (passenger side) that keep rain from getting in the cabin. They live under the top. Mine is apparently beyond repair

I know that I have a few stashed in various places. I'll get back to you after I find one.

Found one. How much are you willing to spend? Lets say shipping is around $15 and I am too lazy to see what they sell for. Send me some money and I'll get it in the mail.
