We highly recommend that you make a purchase from our company when you are ready to do the installation either once received or within the first week. The reason for this is because your warranty period (on applicable items) will start once you receive your item. Any claim placed after the warranty period cannot be accepted. Buyer assumes liability if he/she fails to report any problems within the warranty period.

Before reading this section; know that seized / blown engines are not covered under the warranty. Unless otherwise stated, you are purchasing a tested, working unit. Even on the first day of your warranty period if this occurs; any claim will immediately be refused.

Additionally; shipping and labor charges are not covered under the warranty. Buyer must accept the responsibility and coverage upon placing a claim.

Claims or chargebacks stating the item is not as described will not be accepted. All buyers are presented with actual item pictures prior to shipping out.

If a settlement is in progress and the client attempts a chargeback, know that all previous offers are subject to deductions in dealing with the chargeback case.
 

Engines complete with accessories may not comply with the emission control laws of the state in which it is being sold or used.

Important Guidelines: Engine(s) / Transmission(s):
Failure to comply to the following maintenance requirements will void the warranty.

Engine Requirements

  • Replace engine oil to manufacturer's suggested levels.
  • Replace oil filter.
  • Replace gaskets (valve cover, oil pan & rear main seal)
  • Inspect and replace (if needed) new timing belt/chain
  • Replace thermostat and water pump
  • Flush cooling system and refill with antifreeze to appropriate level.
  • Install new spark plugs, new belts and hoses
  • Change the oil after the first 600 miles and at recommended service intervals thereafter
  • Service the vehicle at proper intervals as per manufacturer's guidelines
  • Quick check on small parts and accessories such as connections, fittings, lines and hoses as well as replacing them if necessary prior to installation.

Transmission Requirements

  • Check the flexplate for cracks or excessive wear on the starter teeth.
  • Replace oil pan gasket, front and axle seals and replace filter (if applicable).
  • Flush & inspect transmission cooling lines. Follow manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Properly align torque converter (Automatic Transmission Only)

Due to the number of false warranty claims we have been forced to evaluate each claim critically based on the purchase and strict revision of dates. For example: a claim for a broken rod bearing within the first week of receiving the engine will more likely receive proper validation as opposed to the last week of the warranty. Please note that many claims are due to the neglect of the purchased item or possible modification such a remapping or faulty tuning of an engine itself. These types of modification although difficult to determine on our end will not be warranted. If a staff member, for any reason, has an inclination to assume this has been done to an engine, your warranty claim will be refused.

Know what you are buying. Buyer must determine the fitment if it is not stated. Any purchase used towards racing and rally applications will not be warrantied. Some parts may be performance oriented or upgrades to stock components but we do not encourage the use of our stock to be used for these applications or to be subject to aggressive driving conditions.
