Our reconditioned engines are totally overhauled in house by our meticulous engine builders. From core engine to totally reconditioned, we ensure every engine is perfect. Using only the best parts, we aim to ensure thousands of hassle free miles.

 We first strip the engine down into components, every part is measured e.g. crankshaft, camshafts, con-rods and replaced where necessary. We then proceed to deep clean the entire engine, ensuring all water ways, oil and dirt are removed.

Valves are polished and re-seated, and new stem seals are fitted to a pressure tested and skimmed cylinder head. We then refit the crankshaft on to OE quality main bearings. Piston rings are fitted with OE quality big end bearings on the con-rods.

As soon as your order is built, it's immediately dispatched. All the items are in stock.

If you buy supplied and fitted fitting will be at our fitting centre in Acton Suffolk CO10 0BB recovery is not included please contact us for a fitting date . 

All of our engines are sold on an exchange basis and as such a surcharge will be PAYABLE*. This is fully refunded when your old engine is returned to us a surcharge is only refunded if you PAID a surcharge if you select delivery and collect a surcharge wont be charged, please contact us for details or visit our surcharge page .

Engine exchange explained

The engine you've picked requires an engine exchange and as such will require a surcharge. You will be able to choose from the following options please note +£500 or +£400 means an extra amount that is charged on top of your engine price this is taken as a deposit "surcharge" to ensure you return your old unit :

  • I have already sent my old engine (If we have already received your old engine there is no surcharge to pay)
  • I will send my old engine (Surcharge payable, which is then refunded once we receive your old engine)
  • I have no engine to exchange (Surcharge payable)

It does not matter what condition your engine is in, providing it is the same model and the same parts are within the box (block/head etc.) 

Please note collection/delivery / surcharge is not included within the purchase price.
