Anyone have positive experience with JDM Engine Corp?

Postby r-town » Wed Oct 15, 2014 5:55 pm

So I'm looking to swap the motor on one of my tracs, and found this company that has really good prices:

http://www.jdmenginescorp.com/

Has anyone had good/positive experience with this company?

Here is some of the motors I was looking at:

ST205:

ST185 (RC maybe?):

The company says that the prices include shipping for a business address and $65 extra for residential.

2 years ago and my luck was not that great. I picked up a gen3 and it was all bad from the minuet I received it.

First off when I received it it was not on the pallet. It had fallen off and took some mussel to get it back on and dented oil pan. :(

Then during further tear down the turbo had shattered and the turbine was in the down pipe.

After that I did a compression test and had little or no compression on a cylinder.

After this I called them and they told me they were only guaranteeing the engine no ancillary items.

Then I stated the compression issue and they said to put ATF in the low cylinder and wait 24 hours as the ring is stuck. I said no way this is a stuck ring.

Later they stated I would be able to ship back the motor for a refund but I would need to pay for shipping. What BS!!

So I called my credit card and stopped payment and later I got a call from them stating we have a driver picking it back up.

Long story short...... Ask them for a video of actual engine with compression test.

I later used a different supplier that offered this and was very happy to pay a little extra to get this done.
