1. How many kilometers do your engines and transmissions have on them?

It is not possible to quote the exact number of miles an engine or transmission has. We at Boston-Jap-Tech make an estimate based on the 80,000 Kilometer Theory. The theory takes the average number of kilometers driven annually in Japan and multiplies that with the average number of years a vehicle is driven in Japan. While some of our engines and transmissions carry an average of 80,000 kilometers, most in our inventory will actually have less.

----------

2. Do the Japanese have to sell their engines or junk their cars at a particular mileage or time?

No, the Japanese do not have to sell their engines or junk their cars once a certain mileage or time has been reached. The Japanese Car Inspection, or Sha-ken as it is called in Japan, determines whether a vehicle is cost-effective to keep. Sha-ken is a detailed bi-annual inspection that is very expensive, especially for older cars that may not pass. The owner is penalized heavily for any failures.

----------

3. Are your engines complete?

Just like an engine you can get directly from the dealer, our engines are sold as complete "long block" assemblies. However, all the external components like the intake and exhaust manifold, the starter and the alternator are also included.

----------

4. Do your engines meet the South African requirements for smog and emissions control and suited?

Yes, our engines are legal.

----------

5. Is shipping expensive?

No, due to our high volume, we pass the savings on to you, our customers.

----------

In general, the engine comes with an intake manifold, exhaust manifold, fuel injection, alternator, distributor, usually partial wire harness that are cut near the engine, oil pan, valve cover, pulleys, etc. We do not gaurantee that the accessories will be included or that they work properply. Axles, motor mounts and linkage do not come with the engine.

8. Engine wiring harness.

Japanese engine wiring harnesses are usally cut of halfway. They can only be used for salvaging plugs.
