Some of you may remember a big ruckus that happened here on the forum a year ago. I purchased a remanufactured engine from Jake and had it shipped to a local mechanic for install. My mechanic claimed the engine arrived with damage to the heads. Jake blamed the mechanic and the accusations and some name calling(on both sides) began to fly here on the forum. I was left in the middle with not much to say and no warranty in the end.
Just thought I would update the situation. The mechanic "repaired" the damage and installed the engine. It has been about a year and 21,000 miles now and everything is going fine. Engine runs great and just passed California smog test. Car is my commuter and is a comfortable and quiet ride for me. Things could have gone better on both sides but Jake's engine is a solid product and I feel confident it will take me many more miles before I retire it.
