When engine failure occurs, there are several replacement options. Replacing an engine is more affordable than rebuilding the failed engine. A rebuilt engine is more likely to fail again, and sooner. The replacement also requires less downtime.
We most often recommend Factory Re-manufactured Engines. Factory warranties cannot be beat; they cover towing, parts and labor, hotel costs, and even car rental.
Less expensive is installing low mileage imported engines. The warranty is typically only thirty to ninety days, covering parts only. These imported engines are not available for all makes and models.
For non-Porsche models, we recommend the replacement options due to a reduction in cost. However, the opposite is true with many Porsche models. Rebuilding the engine can be done in-house for less than the cost of a replacement engine.
