Honesty and integrity is our policy! Rebuilding an engine for our clients is what we do!

Here you "will not" find the pretend remanufactured (Painted Silver!) to pretend its new, misleading information?

Below we will explain the Northstar and the misleading information given by these misleading shops;

We will also add excerpts directly from GM's service instruction of the can do and cannot?


There are many companies offering anything they can to acquire your money for little to nothing in return, then there is those who have an old school list hoping to fool you into believing they will do the same and you'll except it because it sounds good!

We see many companies versing one another trying to explain why they are the better choice. It is both amazing and stupid on their part for their dishonesty, such as those incorrect people you will find on the CF with little to NO mechanical knowledge at all!??

Or their blind cohorts such as the infamous small company in Canada taking advantage of innocent people everyday!


So you ask what is the difference between these claims?


New Crated?


Remanufactured or the rebuilt?          


Lets see if we can give the truth for you to recognized the dishonest companies out there with only one goal, to deceive you out of your hard earned money?

Well, we all know there is extremely dishonest people such as NP, but what about those we have never heard of? Or those who seem to have good online reviews?

It is a shame to see so many dishonest people in the automotive industry, from the original manufacturer to the guy in the local mechanic shop! Yes, GM is a very dishonest company, I suppose it is because of necessity we still buy cars rather then to tell these people to shove it! I am sure you have all wanted to do that at one point or another?


Anyhow, lets get on with it; what is the difference between these crazy names given to the type of engine you would like to buy?

Crated; what is this all about? This name originated out of the simple fact the engine was put into a crate to be shipped out? Go Figure! But over time this became a name for what most would believe to be a new engine and a 100% complete ( meaning it was everything from the oil pan to the intake including all sensors etc..........

Boy has the term Crated engine been taken out of context over time? Today we see the guy claiming fame to the remanufactured engine calling his engine a Crated motor, Seriously!
