From our customers
I'm very grateful for their exceptional customer service and willingness to answer all of my questions. They made me feel comfortable from the beginning and gave valuable suggestions and insight which led to a perfect purchase! I couldn't be happier and would recommend this team to anyone, from engine experts to first time buyers like me.Los Angeles, CA
Got a pretty good deal on a Subaru EJ253 for a car of mine that threw a rod, checked forums online on how to use a Japanese engine in a USDM car, and it worked great with no burning oil or knock. The people are pretty straightforward if you know what you’re looking for. Would recommend as the best engine importer in the area compared to others.
Bought a engine and transmission for my 1998 Lexus gs300 spoke to the manager Carlos and owner tony gave me a good price that I couldn’t match with the local shops around my way even delivered the engine and transmission in a fast paced. Definitely will recommend to anybody else who needs an engine or transmission or anything from there shop. Great Customer Service thank you Jdm Engine Zone Much Appreciated

I could not be more pleased with how simple the process was and how well the engine is running. I am leaving this review because I am grateful to have been treated so professionally and elegantly by the Engine Zone staff. Thanks again and god bless.Oklahoma, 2005 Honda Civic EX
I know the guys over at JDM Engine Zone for a few years now. Opened a small used car sales business and I work with Engine Zone exclusively if I need a new engine for any Japanese car we buy at auction. Good prices, quick shipping, never had any problems. 5 stars.Colorado, 2009 Toyota Camry LE
