I bought a long block 350 Chev marine motor for my boat. I bought the long block because it came with a 2 year warranty. After install the motor continued to push coolant and pressurize, overflowing out of my heat ex-changer. I paid the company that did the install to replace the heat exchanger, check all kinds of potential issues. Only to find out that the head gasket was blown on a brand new motor. We sent the invoice to S&J to have them cover only a small part of the repairs and they refused. Brand new motor with not even an hour on it.
S and J Rocks!! great job!
I blew up my 430 motor in my 69 Riviera 12 days before my annual Hot August Nites run. Not enough time to build a motor from scratch, and I didn't want to build up an old block.
I looked everywhere on the web for a motor, and these are about the only guys from what I saw who are doing this anymore. I called and told them I needed a short block on short order, but they said there was some vacation conflicts and couldn't get me one till the 13th. Well game over I thought. Ryan called me back and said the boss over heard my story and they had a slot open and could ship a 455 short block on the next Friday. I gave them my credit card number and didn't really have a whole lot of faith this would go down. The motor was at the dock on Tuesday morning the 7th!! I picked it up, and had it in the car and running on Weds night. Motor was absolutely clean oiled and tested!! Every bolt hole was clean and threaded.
Great price also, compared to the genius BB Buick guys who want your arm and a leg!! It came .30 over with all new pistons, and perfect bores. I just got back after a great trip, with the baddest 69 riv in Reno, and quite possibly CA. Close to 500HP on this block with TA aluminum heads, headers, Edelbrock performer manifold, 800cfm carb, and roller rockers. These guys ROCK!! I highly recommend this place, and maybe Ill just buy short blocks from now on to save myself some pain and suffering.
BTW I'm not a paid writer, and you can see my car at dalesheridandotcom.
Thanks S and J
s@j engines wont warranty their engines – warranty dept very helpful till its its time for them to actually pay for their crappy assembly of what they call a re-manufacterd motor......mine had overheating problems from the start even with all new coolant parts down to a new radiator ..was later diagnosed as a head gasket leak but they refuse to pay for the re-pair because they said it was my fault for the overheating....small claims court here we come
BEWARE!!!! – Their good reviews were by paid reviewers!!!Worst!!!! Do not believe the 7 yr warranty. They make every excuse not to handle warranty work. Warranty dept helpful till you send motor back then make every excuse that it was your fault not theirs then want money to get it back!!!! I purchased a motor with a small knock in the bottom of the motor with 0 miles!!! I have purchased several motors over the years for muscle cars to daily drivers and this was the worst experience ever!!! $3000 for a piece of junk with a knock!!!
Mechanic's best friend. They've saved me thousands over the years.
I've probably ordered over 30 engines from S&J and have only had to use the warranty on one. They build the engines to last.
Best engine team out there. – Best out there. I don't know anything about engines except that my brother replaced my Tacoma's engine with an S&J engine and it has no problems. Thanks guys.
Dealer Recommended – My dealer gets their re-mans from S&J. Dropped a new motor in my vehicle and it's seriously flawless.
Been running it for 20k with no issues.
I'd never heard of em before my dealer recommended them, but I'm glad they are out there.
Don't wait! Get your engine now. – Seriously... you can't go wrong with S&J. They'll make sure that you get exactly what you need at an excellent price.
Check out their price match policy.
I won't go anywhere else. These guys are the best in the industry.
Car runs Beautifully – I made the mistake of running on a noisy engine for far too long, so by the time I brought it in to get serviced, my engine was done for. S & J Engine did a great job at getting my engine back to new, and I really appreciate the hard work. My car runs beautifully, and it was worth every penny.
Perfect – These guys are quick and on point, I asked to them to port and polish my block for me. They had it done and it looks clean and amazing, the bore was perfect all around as requested.
