Default Junkyard trip

well, went to the junkyard today. Bunch of SE'* in there. Was like 3 green/tan spoilerless SE, and that I didn't know is that all three had the dual visor in them. I thought they were only an SSE/SSEi thing. Didn't get any as I was not looking for tan, but I migh be going back next weekend if someone wants me to grab parts. Prices are a little more an this place, so be warned. most visor pockets were stretched. There was also a 91 SSE in there. metal wasn't the greatest, but 90% of the kit was there and in good shape, save for maybe the front bumper (it was under a truck). Interios was fair at best and grey. As I was walking out I went over to get a bra that was on a monte carlo for my lumina:

Fits nice, just need one round tube of the one side (anyone see where this is going?


As I was making my way over there I saw a black park ave and was commenting on how it was in good condition and the paint looked nice... that'* when I saw it... A little red emblem on the fender...ULTRA!!!

Lifted the hood and 30 minutes later, this came out:

Car had 166k on it. Engine was completely intact (before i got to it) It was a 92 so I wasn't too interested in the whole engine, but could go back and get parts if people needed them. It has little shaft play. I can turn it left and right and it moved maybe 1/4 inch before it catches. The propellers are not ground up, just dirty.


There was still gas in the fuel rail and coolent in it, so I was getting a good buzz while doing this. Got all of that for $75. Going to clean the TB and see if it'll work on my car. Looked like it was all the same under there. It had EGR and had the little black cap intact as well. I covered up the opening in the LIM with a plastic bag, put a board over it and closed the hood so if people needed other stuff I could get it.

More pictures here including ones of each propeller.

Nope... Bergen in Rochester. Gary'* only had 3 SE'* when I went last weekend and 2 88-89 SSE'*. Now I need to figure out what to do with this one. I was thinking of a rebuild and then porting it if I can find instructions for that.

I've been looking for the EGR mounting base and pipe from a supercharged '92 for quite a while, and nobody on this board has had one for sale.
If you're absolutely sure that the engine you got the supercharger from was a '92, and the digital EGR was mounted on the front of the engine and had the metal corrugated tube going to the front exhaust manifold, I could sure use that part.

Please let me know if you go back to that yard and that part it still there.
Thanks.

ok... does this pipe cone off the supercharger to EGR? or just the EGR to manifold. I am positive the car is a 92 cause the registration was still on it.

The EGR pipe goes from under the base of the EGR valve and is threaded to a fitting on the front exhaust manifold.

I believe this EGR pipe is welded to the underside of the EGR base plate. I don't even need the EGR valve itself; I only need the base part with the pipe attached. It has to be a '92 though, because even the '93 is different (I know that because I also own a '93).
Thanks.

ok... I will try and get there friday or saturday. Maybe even during lunch sometime this week. I will get pictures and let you know if I go early in the week. If not, do you want me to just grab it if it appears to be good? not sure on cost.

If it looks to be in good condition, please ask them how much they want for it.
I have no idea on the cost either, but I'd guess they'll want more if it has the digital EGR valve attached, so I'd guess it should be $10 or less for just the base with the pipe.
I think there are only 2 mounting bolts for the bast plate and 1 nut where the pipe attaches to the exhaust manifold.
Thanks for your offer to help.
