Warranty and Payment

It is our goal to make the purchase of a crate or custom built engine as enjoyable as possible for the customer.  That is one reason we start and run EVERY complete engine assembly on our test stand before we crate them for shipping; so when the customer bolts their new engine into their car's engine compartment, they can rest assured knowing it will start easily.  We offer free dyno testing with the purchase of one of our Pro-Street engine asemblies for the added peace of mind, knowing the engine has and will perform up to expectations.  We offer 6 month limited warranty on our workmanship with the purchase of dyno testing. If you have a concern contact us immediately.  If it appears there is definitely a mechanical problem, send the engine back to Sandoval Performance where we will perform a diagnosis.  If there is indeed a problem brought on by our workmanship, we will fix it at no cost to you. If there is a manufacturer defect with a component, we will work with you in contacting the manufacturer of said component and try to solve the issue.  Any disassembly and assembly work will be at a minimal cost to the customer.   Shipping charges will apply.  While Sandoval Performance engines require minimal maintenance, they make very good power and will require a functional cooling system and awareness on the part of the customer as these engines will rev quickly so a rev-limiter is suggested as is a functional cooling system.  Sandoval Performance will not, under any circumstances, pay for a third party to repair, replace, or modify any components or make adjustments on a Sandoval Performance engine.  Warranty is null and void of any modifications are performed, components are replaced, or if the engine is over-revved or over-heated.  If you plan to occasionally race one of our engines, we need to know that in advance.
