SBT Engines? Or elsewhere?
Hey all....some of you may know my RXP gave up on me from the other thread "another one bites the dust".
Im about to start pulling parts to see what all has happened in particular. Meanwhile, Im fishing around to see what my engine replacement options are.
Has anyone bought from SBT or know anything about the reliability of their rebuilt engines????
This HAS to be easier than keeping my own block and rebuilding it from the ground up, right??!
Thanks a bunch!

The last time I looked at SBT's web site, they said that you need to send your engine to them Before they can tell you if the core is reusable. If it's not reusable, then you pay the full price. Just an FYI... Ron

Rebuilding the motor is rarely worth the cost unless you do it yourself. I found this out when I hydrolocked my 04 RXP. I know a few people who have sbt motors and they are happy with them. The nicest thing is they have the best warrenty in the business.

I have bought 2 engines from them in the past. Very good guys to work with & they stand behind their product even if you make a mistake installing it. We changed a 580 on a 93 GTX & had a air pocket in the oil line to the rotory valve. Motor lasted about 15 mins. Sent it back to them & they enchanged it & sent it out with 1 day turn around. I also did a 951 and it still runs great.
