 We know how to Find, Test & Sell Japanese Engines

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 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.

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 installed our engines and transmissions in their vehicles. 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 engines and transmissions available for U.S market.
