I recently bought a motor (13B-T) from Tiger Japanese online. They jerked me around for two weeks, telling me that they sold the one I had ordered (coincidentally, the price of the motor I wanted went up!) until I threatened to take my business and my $1250 somewhere else.



When I received my motor last week, the cylinders were rusty, the intake was full of water (water actually poured out when the hose was removed) and the turbo pins are missing huge chunks of metal. There are also other little things wrong.



I called them, emailed them and am getting no response!

Good Luck!

That really sucks man. Have you tried contacting ebay about them. They have an ebay store and if you explain the situation, they may do something, even if you did not do business through ebay.

damn, wonder if i would be ok ordering a t2 front clip from them... maybe it would be in better shape since the engine has never been taken out and thrown around and whatnot, plus somewhat protected from the weather
