Jdm tiger japanese legit?

okay guys... i am kind of worried. i bought a H22A type S engine + a 5 speed transmission here because it was cheap... so i was wondering did anyone had experience from buying here? I research on google and found some people that actually bought some engines from them and received it all broken and they called them to get the parts to fix it but they refuse.. so im kinda worried.. please let me know if you guys had any experience from them, thanks

terrible customer service, terrible stuff. i know a 3 people that ordered h22's from them 2 of the 3 have blown up. when you get it, just make sure you go thru the complete motor take the head off and check everything out. replace all of your gaskets.

Of all the things you could cheap out on, you picked the heart of your car.

Good luck with that motor.. if you get it.

You make a point but better to cheap out on heart of your car than the suspension or brakes. Would you rather trasplant your cars heart or possibly need it done yourself? Cheap h22+tranny to me seems quite redundant...

Re: Jdm tiger japanese legit?

I got mine there, and it turned out fine.... I also kept in contact with 1 person... (my own idea) that way I was sort of on a personal level with someone there, and frequently I made contact letting them know that I aint no pushover, and that I know my sh*t.... just ask them if the h22 your getting is from an accord type R, or prelude.... you can ask what the serial number on the tranny is... accord type R tranny is P2T4..... but then type S, is a type S... but I had to replace my tps, and couple other small things that broke off during shipping.... this is what it looked like when I got it......

Re: Jdm tiger japanese legit?

i got my H23 from there also and had no issues, Ben_Deez is right though about keepin in touch, i ordered mine and never heard anything, i saw it was billed to my credit card so i called and they were just shipping it out, so from then on i called every other day for a few til it got here, only thing that was broke was the knock sensor which didnt matter to me anyway, the motors been in my car and running hard for well over a year now

Re: Jdm tiger japanese legit?

thanks for the comments guys, I was stupid buying the engine without doing any research. So far i found out that half of the ppl have problems with them and the other half were satisfied.. i was thinking of returning the motor since they didnt shipped it to me yet but if i do they will charge me restocking fee.. so ima give it a try and hope nothing goes wrong. I just recently got my 1999 prelude for $2000 since the auto transmission was bad.. pretty good price so thats why i wanted to do a manual tranny swap but hey i saw the engine and tranny for cheap so why not.. My dad is a mechanic so i ll make sure everything is alright.. I ll post up pictures later if the engine i receive is fine.. wish me good luck!
