Nobody does a better job of finding engines in the wrecking yard than Richard Holdener. He’s got a nose for it. Of course our very favorite late model wrecking yard helps because they have a great turnover and often have big, small, and LS engines for sale on the cheap. But the yard is also big enough to have other stuff you might not think about like on this trip. Richard is on the hunt for some “Other Guys” engines like at Altas 4.2, aka the Ameri-Barra engine which is a fun 6 cylinder that GM had in Trailblazers and such. These engines have made HUGE power under boost and are used in all kinds of stuff you don’t even realize is racing with it. I love them and have always wanted one. Now of course Richard is going to get one and have fun with it. Damn him. LOL
In this video Richard takes us along on a walk through the wrecking yard in search of three particular engines, but of course along the way there is all kinds of other fun stuff to see. So take a walk, see what he sees, and let us know which ones you wish he had grabbed!
