Rhino, ATK, Orient Engines, JER (Japanese engine remanufacturers), Power Pro so on and so on... are all the same group of people from what I can tell. -
I have $1, 900 in a Reman. LB 22R-TEC with overheating/air in coolant issues, which I purchased from "JER". I received with the engine an "engine test report" which claimed the compression was 181-183 lbs. This worried me as the factory spec is 149lbs, 120 min., and here mine is producing only 115 lbs. or so on all four @ less than 3K miles, on head gasket number 2 with ARP Head Studs torqued to 80 ft. Lbs. A. carbon test confirmed my suspicion of exhaust air in cooling system. Which leads me to believe they sent me a bad block. When I called the number on my invoice, I got "ATK". The woman I spoke with said they were not affiliated with JER in any way and believed they went out of business some time ago, and that they probably would not warranty their product, but I should receive a call from the manager tomorrow. We'll see...
Seems to me to be a fly by night, national rip-off business with several alias', which they use to place blame on "the other company". - I wanna be the leader of this pack of pissed off people who want their money back. Can anyone spot me a few bucks for a top-notch lawer?
