JDM Tiger Japanese Auto Parts Ltd. / missing parts to engine

1 Lumberton, TX, United States Review updated:

I order a Twin Turbo Subaru engine from Tiger Japanese and on the website said that the engine came with the turbos and the intercooler and the piping of the intercooler also .But it took from Febuary 8 to the 22 to get my engine and then I was the Intercooler and the piping to it.Tiger said that it was not suppose to have the parts .But you check the web site and it says it is.I would not have bought the engine without the intercooler and piping.They just pull the intercooler off the website the listing now.I was going to buy more engines if it had worked out .I guess this is a good thing that happened now not when I bought more engines their lose also.

    I respond here, with regard to Tiger JDM Auto Parts LTD, so that people on the net doing their research on this company DO NOT make the same mistake I made. DO NOT buy from Tiger, they have the absolute worse warranty/return/exchange policy you will ever encounter. In my opinion, it is borderline fraudulent. You cannot speak with a representative over the phone with regard to a warranty claim, instead, you have to file a form on their website and it takes FOREVER for them to respond if at all. I purchased a Mitsubishi 4G63T engine from them and it became evident that they do not inspect or check a damn thing despite what their website claims. This engine is well known to suffer from crankwalk and anyone with any mechanical knowledge would realize that the engine is no good. You would think a company that deals with engines all day long would know this. I believe they knowingly sent me a crankwalked engine and know I have very little recourse in the matter. My advice to anyone and everyone seeking a JDM engine, DO NOT buy from Tiger. There are many other importers out there that have a much better record.

    I bought a subaru engine from these guys. the driver side head had a crack in it and leaked antifreeze. I sent them pictures and they said it was normal. I wanted to get another engine and they said I would have to pay 200 dollars to ship the old one back and then after an evaluation they would determine whether or not they would ship a replacement. I made a claim and it took so long to get a response that the initial exchange perior had expired and I had to deal with their warranty. I decided that since the engine ran pretty well, that I would replace the head instead of shipping the old engine back and taking my chances on another problem engine. tiger agreed to reimburse me the cost for the head and gaskets. I spent the money and submitted an invoice to them. Several weeks went by and I noticed my claim had been closed. I contacted them and checked on the status and they said they did not receive my invoice. I sent it again. now they want original copies of the parts bills, of which i only have the monthly statements since it has been a couple months. It seems like they do everything they can to procrastinate and not honor their commitments. Our company has installed hundreds on JDM engines and we have never had any issues that weren't resolved quickly and painlessly. Tiger had a good price on this subaru engine and I thought it would be a good deal. I will only deal with my local JDM guys in the future and I recommend that anybody reading this only deal with a local reputable company. I would rather be able to return the engine myself rather have all this hassle. I agree with the previous poster about the lack of inspection of these engines. Please let our trouble be a learning experience for future buyers, don't make the same mistake.

    Bought a nissan xterra engine, had to switch every piece on the engine to make it work, basically down to bare block, even the oil pan was different. so much for buying a vehicle specific engine, so 5 hrs of switching one to the other, we install the engine, crank it up, and the motor knocks!... you've got to be kidding me!!!.. stay far far far away from this company, they are crooks
