1) Are you engines complete?
Yes, most of our engines are sold complete.

2) Do you offer a delivery service?
Yes, we freight Australia wide. All our engines and gearboxes are strapped and wrapped onto skids or pallets. You can use your own transport company, or we can do it for you.

3) How do I go about registering my new engine?
Each state has its own rules and requirements. Please check with your local transport department.

4) How many kilometers do your engines and transmissions have on them?
It is not possible to quote the exact number of kilometers an engine or transmission has. Our suppliers in Japan do their best to source engines and transmissions that have done under 200,000kms. So while some of our stock will have this amount of kilometers, most in our line of stock will actually have less.

5) Do the Japanese have to sell their engines or scrap their cars at a particular amount of kilometers or time?
No, the Japanese do not have to sell their engines or scrap their cars once a certain mileage or time has been reached. Shaken is the name of the vehicle inspection (road worthy) program in Japan. The inspection system is in place to ensure cars on Japanese roads are properly maintained, and are safe to be on the road. Shaken is a detailed bi-annual inspection, which is very expensive, especially for older cars. In Japan, once a car reaches a certain age, it is more cost effective to get rid of it and buy a new vehicle. Since there are a limited amount of used cars sold in Japan, most of the vehicles are either exported or dismantled.

purchased a Toyota 1HD-FT engine from here to replace my 80 series 1HZ engine. Adam was very helpful with arranging delivery, and his after sale service is second to none. He prides himself on building & maintaining his companies good reputation. The engine is 100% & running like a dream! I'm very impressed with the power from my stock 1HD-FT. Anyone looking to do something similar, I would highly recommend Adam and his team at Jap Engine Imports for your engine conversion needs. Quality engines at the best prices!
