KNOW WHAT YOUR SUPPLIER IS QUOTING
COMPARE YOUR QUOTES
When buying a remanufactured engine, it is important to know exactly what your supplier is quoting. Difference in cost? Your suppliers are probably not quoting the same thing.
Check your specs
The least expensive offer may be a quote for a long block, while the more expensive offer may be a quote for a complete engine.
Reman, rebuilt or used?
The terms remanufactured and rebuilt are often used interchangeably. However, remanufacturing an engine is far superior to rebuilding and requires a much higher level of craftsmanship than a rebuilt engine.
Rebuilt vs remanufactured
A rebuilt engine is a repaired unit. Rebuilding an engine repairs it to the level of failure that the engine had, plus a basic in-frame reman kit. Major engine component parts such as the cylinder block, crankshaft, and rods are not sent to be machined. When an engine is rebuilt, some parts are reused and highly damaged parts are replaced.
Our remanufactured engines are completely dismantled. All major component parts are sent to the machine shop, and brought back to the original blueprints and exact specifications.
These components are then tested to original equipment standards. When remanufacturing an engine, the engine technician removes any outdated components.
All parts are replaced with OEM, or equal to OEM new parts. Because of this, many engineers believe a remanufactured engine is just as good as a new engine. Remanufacturing an engine is to make the engine as close to new as possible, or better. Our in-house product is remanufactured, not to be confused with OEM remanufactured product which is factory made.
