Frequently Answered Questions

The best way to get a fast answer to your Subaru question is to give us a call. (231)-668-2986 We are always happy to share Subaru advice!

Do I have to install the engine myself?
We can arrange towing for your Subaru to our facility. Here we can rebuild your Subaru engine and reinstall it. You can pick your Subaru up or have it towed back to you. (Service area limited to the state of Michigan.)
We can also send your remanufactured Subaru engine to your local mechanic for installation.


Do I have to send you my old engine first?
On rare occasions or for rare engines, you might need to ship the engine first. We sell most engines on an exchange. Call us for more information about shipping your old engine and core exchange pricing.


Do you accept credit cards?
Yes. We gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. We also accept personal and company checks. (Up to a 10 day waiting period for checks to clear our bank.)


Do you bore the blocks?
Yes/No. By boring the block we have experienced a quieter engine build.
Any standard engine blocks that meet factory specs are not bored.
How are engines shipped?
We ship rebuilt engines via common carrier, packaged securely in a crate or on a pallet. Transit times vary depending on destination.


How fast can I get my engine?
We build each engine to order. Average build time is about 3 days and shipping takes 1-5 business days depending on destination. Overseas, Alaska and Hawaii are air freighted.


Why can’t I order directly from your site?
We prefer to have direct contact with our customers. Most importantly, because there are many specifics related to each engine, we need to ask you questions so you get the exact engine you need to fit your car.
