Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you situated?
We are in Hartbeespoort, North West Province. We are roughly 20 minutes from Pretoria, 30 minutes from Johannesburg and 15 minutes from Brits. We also ship countrywide and cross border using various couriers at really affordable prices.

What warranty do you offer?
All petrol engines are covered by a 3 month from date of invoice or 5000km warranty whichever comes first, however, this will exclude the bolt-on components such as the starters, alternators, carburetors, and distributors.
All diesel engines are sold with either a start-up guarantee and a one-week exchange from date of invoice or some have a 30 day warranty from date of invoice.
Turbocharged and performance engines, however, do not carry a warranty.
Once the engine has been installed the vehicle must be brought back to us within 7 working days, so that we can verify that new filters, belts, and service components have been replaced and fitted after which the warranty will commence.
Do you take trade-ins?
We only sell imported engines and thus do not take engine exchanges or trade-ins. We recommend that you keep your old engine until you have fitted the replacement unit as you may need to use some of your old engine parts (sensors, fittings, manifolds, etc).
Are your engines complete?
Our engines are supplied complete with all hanging parts (starter, alternator, power steering pump + aircon pump). We do not strip our engines at all.
How many Km’s do your engines have?
They all have between 60000km and 80000km, they are low-mileage imported engines from Japan.

If I need a refund, how long will it take?
We refund immediately once the return is received if you paid by EFT, cash or debit card.
