Here in the Washington DC area, most salvage yards are part of the Brandywine Group, and charge several hundred more than Pick-N-Pull for a used engine.

Don't get me wrong, if China's engine ever fails I will more than likely go the PNP route, you simply have to know what your up against before the process starts. There is no better part for the price than PNP, and if you can hit a half price day even better.
But uh, not much in the way of customer service at all........[folks are usually polite, just don't deviate from the exact norm.]
