    Bought my Toyota 5VZ from them. Nothing wrong with engine so far, did about 12k km since the conversion.

    Their service was good.

    The guy claims he goes to Japan himself to select engines with low milleage.

    Mine only had a TPS which were broken during transport, otherwise perfect.

    Almost

    Was ready to pull the trigger on a 6g74 Mitsu motor from them until I got tip to try something else on my noisy engine. My due diligence told me I could buy with confidence.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    1) several times
    2) quality is excellent, they fly over and hand pick a lot of the stock
    3) I have never heard anything bad about them, they've been in business for over 15 years
    4) I can inspect any engine on your behalf, as well as the bench start, and provide independent feedback, as a forum service

    Be aware: There is a guy on Facebook selling engines and gearboxes. He is in is somewhere on the South Coast but deliver. They don't accept cash (because their drivers are dishonest, go figure), you have to EFT. 50% deposit then you EFT upon receipt and give the 'driver' a POP. A quick Google said it's a scam.

    Owner's name is Paul. I have dealt with him on a number of occasions, 100% legit and stand up guy. The shop floor is also the neatest you find at ANY engine importer.

    Having visited his shop once I was more than comfortable to buy another motor sight unseen, delivered to me.
