I don't know man, they show an Integra Type R engine having 210hp and an 8900 redline when really they have 195hp and an 8400 redline. Also it only costs $4200 where everybody else sells them for $5500-$6000.

They show the Civic Type R engine as having a 9000rpm redline, and I have one, and it redlines at 8400 too. These guys don't sound like they know shit about shit. Try www.inlinefour.com or www.hmotorsonline.com for a legit swap.

I bought my engine from them at a local shop. It had to be shipped from Japan and that worked fine but the bad part is due to the black out in Canada and the U.N bombing shit happeneing it had to be delayed. I bought a b18b1.

Last year they were having a LOT of problems and negtive feedback. Lots of wrong parts, broken parts, missing parts and the worst customer service I have yet to hear about. Now a days it seems enough people avoid them so the reports have thinned out some. But I would just stick with a tried and true www.hmotorsonline.com or www.passwordjdm.com maybe www.importautosalvage.com

I guess they have not fixed their bullshit business practices, and now they are saying there "competetion" are the ones putting out all the threads because they are so good, they are killing the market, what a bunch of douchbags.

Here is a thread of a recent and VERY common encounter with Osuckasmotors.
