Source of most reliable Used Japanese Engines & Transmissions for Acura, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Lexus, Subaru, Scion & Isuzu.
Ten years ago we had a dream about building a robust business model selling low mileage used Japanese engines all across United States. Our extensive research of U.S automotive market concluded that most U.S consumers relied on engines and transmissions from salvage yards. Our team at our head office in Osaka, Japan geared up to make this dream a reality and in 2004 Engine World Inc was born in Houston, Texas. Our launch team had the passion, skills, expertise and support of our team in Japan to supply high quality Japanese engines and transmissions imported from Japan within the contiguous United States.
Soon after we opened the doors of our business, word-of-mouth spread the news about our low mileage Japanese engines and our phones started buzzing with inbound sales calls for Jdm engines.
This year we achieved our tenth-year milestone. We owe our success to our vision, team in Japan and our employees. Today, 10 years after our Japanese motors first hit the market over 20,000 customers have installed our premium engines and transmissions. Our repeat customers consider our engines and transmissions as most reliable. Auto repair shops all across United States feel safe dealing with us as they are confident about the quality of our product.
In order to ensure quality our engines go through stringent quality control test called “ Ultra-5 test” that covers testing for compression, cylinder leaks, checking for sludge and oil pressure. In addition to this all engines and transmissions are carefully inspected before they are shipped to our customers.
We are propelled by our passion to make dependable Japanese engines and transmissions available for U.S market. We urge our customers not to waste money trying to save money because there is a thin line between throwing hard- earned money on a cheap sub-standard product and saving money on a good quality product. The truth reveals itself after the engine is installed. All motors from Japanese-domestic-market (J.D.M) are pulled out from exceptionally low mileage used vehicles in Japan. Each motor & transmission is tested in Japan and at our Houston head office as well. We sell Re-manufacted Japanese motors for those models we are unable to find used engines for in Japan. We do this in order to provide quality JDM engines for our customers. Our commitment to our customers is to provide best tested motors from Japan to the best of our ability.
Our Goal: Most of us are tired of dishonest vendors who misrepresent the miles and don't test the performance of the engine or transmission. We on the contrary have a very different approach. All our endeavors are towards providing exceptional quality product to our customers. We pay our employees well so there is motivation for them to perform well. In order to do so we have a very stringent quality control for filtering out good engines from bad in Japan. Having our dedicated team in Japan gives an edge over our competition. Therefore our goal is to offer the most viable solution there is for our customers. If we are unable to find an engine in Japan for any of the Japanese engine models listed on this website, we have a dedicated machine shop that produces over fifty Re-manufactured engines a month.We have a very diverse inventory of gasoline and diesel engines for all Japanese brands including Komatsu, Kubota, Yanmar & Isuzu Industrial engines in order to cover industrial and construction machinery market.
Our Exceptional Team at Engine World Inc : We owe our success to our dedicated employees in Houston and Osaka, Japan. We couldn't ask for a better team. We have most highly trained sales representatives who know Japanese automotive market inside-out ! Our technicians are paid well so they are motivated. Our thank our valued team without which we would have not reached this far !
Beware.....Bad Reviews about Engine World are deceptive! - We plead with our prospective customers not to believe the bad reviews as they are not true. We want all our customers to undertand that performance of an engine greatly depends on how it is installed. Tune-up before installation is an integral part of installation process. Replacing Tune up components that have wear & tear is imperitive on all Used & Rebuilt engines. Most people don't emphasize and discuss with their mechanic about tune-up process before installation of an engine or transmission. Another reason for grievance is that most customers don't understand how an engine will be shipped & what accessories will be included. We want to dispel the truth by mentioning that we ship all engines as a long block without any accessories because it is tedious to test an engine with accessories on it. Moreover most external accessories like distributor, intake and exhaust manifold on Japanese motors are not going to be compatible with the USDM engines.
Lastly we want all our customers to know that there are a lot of competitors who try to bury the truth by creating false user accounts and posting deceptive false reviews against us. We would like to assure all our customers that we have been in business for over ten years, we sell over 2500 engines & transmissions in a year which means so far we have sold over 25,000 units. We promise you that you will not find more than handful of bad reviews which are deceptive and not true. We encourage our customers to ask as many questions they may have before deciding to purchasing from us because our aim is to provide the most viable Engines & Transmissions that are tested and have consideribly low miles.
