Default Reason #59 why I love my job

Free parts!

I love that fact that a lot of our customers have 2 much money and instead of waiting for a repair job they would rather just buy a new part and trash the old stuff.

Like my newest free part

An oil cooler off of a Ferrari 348!!! Theres a small external leak on it but all I have to do is dump it in our mineral spirits cleaner for a few hours, pressure test it underwater to find the leak, grind and weld....good as new.

The part is over $1200 brand new and sells for at least $500 on ebay for just the oil cooler and no lines or fittings.

Anyway I still havent decided if im going to repair and sell it or repair and use it myself. But if anyone has a link or directions for a complete install let me know. Basically I need to know what other things I need to buy to hook it up to my car.

Thanks

LOL I understand what you mean. I work at a Porsche and Audi dealership and I just take whatever they throw aside. I have to admit, the porsches transmission is freaking small. Can fit into my trunk.

fix it and sell it... subarus already have an oil cooler and I don't really see the need to put another one on until your pushing more serious power...

LOL, I got my WRX tranny in my trunk when I rebuilt it. Just about any tranny will fit into the trunk. Trannies aren't really that big...
