I've heard a number of bad things, but not as many as from others. At least they're based in the US, so if you have a problem there are some options available to you. The Canadian engine resellers can screw US customers over without a worry... as international lawsuits are far too expensive.

Personally, though. www.hmotorsonline.com (HMO) is the only place I would go to. I got my H22A there a decade ago, and it's still in fantastic shape despite all the abuse I've put it through!

Does this corporation have a legitimate website?

How do you know they're a corporation?

Google seems to be working again. It must've been broken a few minutes ago.

Picking up in person is ALWAYS the best option... especially if you actually know what you're looking for when picking a used engine. Companies are less likely to screw someone that can actually show up on their doorstep!

be careful of wire transfers, they are like paying cash and if something goes wrong with the product you might not have any recourse to correct it. at least with a credit card you have some buyer protection

do your own motormounts with McMaster Carr.come and fill them up with 94 shore compound so you won't have to use the dogbone motor mount in the front. if your going to turbo if you got money to build the motor better do it while you can. the f22 likes boost but not if its got a lot of miles on it. the h22 swap is good and reliable as long as you do it properly but everyone has one its becoming the norm. gl

The F22 doesn't "like boost". Those cast aluminum pistons break quite easily... especially after 20 decades of use. Replace the internals, and a modest turbo setup can be done on an F22A with decent success. Crank up the boost, and you're going to want to replace those stock sleeves with something more solid.

ok so lemme get this straight, u are suggesting that i buy some parts from McMaster, fab up a mount out of them and then use that Parker product to pour in and make a bushing out of? im pretty crafty in fabrication but that seems a little intense. you done this?

So i found the DIY on here about filling existing broken mounts with polymer, i like it. any way i can save money right now is good. my question, that i cant ask on the DIY cause im too "new" is, does the front mount need to be removed for turbo applications? i notice when u buy aftermarket mounts they say your front mount is no longer neccesary. do i jus fill the other three and run with it or am i good togo with all mounts inplace and then route my turbo setup?

look for some of the older threads about turbo, you will find a good answer there
