2004 with 134k. Thinking I should have put a little more up for it. Salvage title, mild front end collision, easily repaired. Not sure what it should be worth.

Is there any chance of scanning these trucks with VCDS before bidding? If not, $6,000 would probably be my top on that particular truck if all of the interior looks to be in good shape. It really depends on how much money it's going to take in repairs, as parts can add up pretty quickly. Assuming good mechanicals and a couple of grand in body work, you should be doing pretty well.

It may have only been around the block, but I got the feeling that considering how heavy it is it really was able to pull like a fright train
I'm sure on the highway it's pretty epic indeed!

This one there could have been a chance of scanning as it was local, but I didn't have the time. I had carfax and service history from my local dealer on the car. Service manager knew the customer and went on about how well they maintained their cars etc. It needed a bumper, fender, tie rod, drivers intercooler. Nothing crazy, and I have a parts car....

$6,000 was my thought before the auction, ended up bidding to $6,500 in the moment. Let it go at 6,600. I had already planned 3k for motor to come out and do cams, actuators, cat delete, egr delete, etc.

Sounds like you have a good plan. I'm trying to avoid pulling the engine... but if I have to, it's on!

I know it's the inevitable so I figure plan for it as well as the upgrades! Just have to keep my eye out for the right deal. I missed one in Florida about a month ago that needed cams. Sold for 4k, clean title. Keep your eye out.

ATR I grew up around hotrods and many of my friends still have fast cars, everyone I take for a ride in my T-reg is amazed at the instant torque the V10 produces. This is coming from guys with cars the are approaching 1000whp
So the long-awaited answer to the mystery fuel leak is...

The fuel temperature sensor leaking/spraying fuel through the electrical connector. If you're familiar with the ALH coolant migration problem, it's essentially the same thing.

The solution was to replace the fuel temp sensor, which required removing the fuel filter module and EGR valve to gain access. It took the shop about a half a day of labor to complete... not bad at all.

Thanks to Jeremy at PD Autowerks for providing excellent service yet again!
