Customer Testimonials

Let's face it. Putting an S&J remanufactured engine into your car, Truck/SUV or boat is fantastic, but the real fun is when the rubber hits the road or the rudder hits the water! Our customers are adding their two cents worth. Here’s what they have to say about us:

  • "My 1972 455 Pontiac runs like brand new!"

    I sent my 1972 455 Pontiac in for rebuilding two years ago (you guys did a basic stock rebuild). I had you guys install an Elgin Performance camshaft at that time; since then I've added a 750 CFM Edelbrock Carburetor plus an RPM aluminum manifold. Today its got a nasty idle and is an absolute monster! The motor still runs like brand new (and I am not easy on it). It is quite apparent by the way it runs and sounds the attention to detail that was put into the rebuilding process. My next engine will be from you guys. Thanks!

  • “This engine Puuuurrrs!”

    To all at S & J Engines,

    I just wanted to say thank you for such a quality product and service. I ordered a Dodge Magnum 5.9/360 for my Ram 1500. This engine Puuuurrrs! And the power added with my add-ons is a nice upgrade. As per the service and prompt delivery - WOW. I am in the military and my engine began making noises on a Wednesday and I had to fly overseas on Friday so I was concerned about how long it would take as I ordered my engine while overseas and when I returned within 3 business days there was this beautiful monster in my driveway. It took me a couple of days to install but once in it fired first crank and is just a nice product from top to bottom. I was back on the road quickly and the price is awesome. All of my friends are planning on changing their engines using these engines just because of how well they run and the price cannot be beat, and if they can be beat they match it! How awesome is that?

    Again tell everyone involved thanks for a wonderful product and workmanship. You all are welcome to visit the Navy ships here in San Diego anytime!!!

  • “Thanks to Dan and the S and J staff for excellent service!”

    Please pass my Thanks to Dan in Warranty. The new S and J engine I installed in my 90 Jeep was consuming huge amounts of oil. He informed me of an issue with the PCV which will cause the oil consumption. I replaced the PCV and the problem has stopped.

    Thanks to Dan and the S and J staff for excellent service!

  • “You have a very satisfied customer”

    I wanted to take a moment to contact you and let you know what a pleasure it has been doing business with your company. I live in Denver, Colorado, and was amazed how easy it was contacting Jay and working with him to ensure the correct engine was built, ordered and shipped to me. Furthermore, the costs quoted matched to the penny for the duration of my order from start to finish.

    The engine was received when quoted, and was more than I expected. I can’t tell you how valuable it is to have received the engine, the oil, and all the needed gaskets for the change over from the bad engine to the new one. The packaging of the new engine was very clean and convenient as well. This also came in very handy in packaging up the core for return to you. The trucking company is to pick it up today.

    S&J Engines has done what many companies no longer do - nor do they care about the level of customer service and availability as yours does. It was a pleasure doing business with you and should I be in the market for another engine, will consider nobody but S&J for those needs.

    Thanks, and please let your entire staff know you have a very satisfied customer due to the hard work and professional jobs they have done.

  • "It’s a Dream Come True!"

    To all at the shop,

    I want to thank everyone for the great remanufactured engine you sent me for my 1987 Toyota Supra Turbo; the engine runs excellent! I never thought I would be driving this car again…it’s a dream come true! Thanks for your help!

  • "Thank you to the folks at S&J"

    Ryan and crew:

    I just wanted to send a "Thank you" to the folks at S&J. You supplied me with a new 5.4 for my personal 2003 Ford Supercrew a few weeks ago. The install went great and following all your detailed instruction for the pre run, the engine fired up smooth as silk. After the install and break in with the Joe Gibbs break in oil things got better.

    My wife and I had previously planned a White tailed deer hunt in Saskatchewan this year but with my engine crapping out we debated that the trip would happen (engine picked up on Nov 14 & broke in on Nov19th - hunting season opened on Nov 25th).

    I am very happy to report that the trip was a complete success and not only did we have a great hunting trip, we put on just over 5000km (3169 miles) with the new S&J engine running fantastic.

    I just wanted to say Thanx to Ryan for making the project and trip a complete success. I'm looking forward to doing business in the future.

  • "S&J delivered everything they promised. What a refreshing and positive experience."

    Thanks to Jay and the guys at S&J Engines my DIY motor replacement on my 97 Jeep Wrangler went great. S&J delivered everything they promised. What a refreshing and positive experience. The guys from customer service, to tech support, to shipping were all great and I would recommend S&J to anyone looking for an engine replacement.

    Thanks again to everyone.

  • "All my boat and car motors will be from S&J Engines."

    "I bought a 455 motor for my old Toronado. Sales team, quality of workmanship was awesome. Please tell the shop guys thanks. I have let everyone know I bought it from S&J out of Washington state and also about the warranty. This is without a doubt the quietest motor I have ever heard. I have twenty-seven years around mechanic shops and tracks as proof. My '69 is stock but I am actually going to put mild pipes so I can hear the motor and, by the way, I do have good hearing. But now, with the windows down doing 70 I can still hear and talk normally to passengers. Thanks! All my boat and car motors will be from S&J Engines."

  • "...they went the extra mile to make sure all my needs were met."

    "I would like to recommend S&J engines to anyone seeking a new motor. I ordered a Dodge 360 with ported and polished heads and performance cam for a complete off frame restoration of my 88 Dodge Power Ram. Not only did they take good care of me but they went the extra mile to make sure all my needs were met. The engine looks and runs fantastic. My next engine will be an S&J engine. Yours should be too."

  • "Thanks again, S & J, for being the best at what you do."

    "I just wanted to tell you guys how happy I am with the boat motor (250c.i. Chevy in-line six Mercruiser 165hp) that I purchased from you over a year ago. I made my purchase in August of '09 and have had absolutely no problems with this motor. It runs like a champ with a ton more power. Rest assured that the over 500 members of my Glasply Club are well informed of the excellent product that you provide as well as the unmatchable customer service both before and after purchase. Thanks again, S&J, for being the best at what you do."

  • "Hats off to S& J Engines, you stand behind your work!"

    "One never knows how good a company is until you have to use a warranty, it's good to know S & J truly stands behind its workmanship. For instance, one of your two primary competitors has a 3 years 100,000 mile unconditional warranty, however the average engine will get 45,000 in three years and shoddy workmanship generally won't show up in that period of time. The second, your main competition also sounds great, but has other restrictions that make it even less useful. Hats off to S& J Engines, you stand behind your work!"

  • "…I am so glad that I chose to deal with your company."

    "I just wanted to express my gratitude to your staff; I am so glad that I chose to deal with your company. I ordered a replacement engine from you last month. From the first contact I had your employees were very helpful and knowledgeable. My 2.5L Jeep engine was delivered right into my garage less than 48hrs after I had ordered it. The info I received from your company was helpful, and the pricing was as good as or better than anything I had found elsewhere. For your info I am now driving my 1993 Jeep Wrangler again, and have 100 miles on the engine, in the 9 years I have had it it has never run so good! Please pass my appreciation on to those responsible!"

    Thank you,
