Best place for a 1j in the bay area?!

Post by Hay_hay on Mon Nov 23, 2015 9:06 am

So I'm looking to get a 1jz vvti sometimes this off season and I'm debating on where to go for it. I know of three places as of now that I'm looking into. Prices are relatively similar between the three but I'd like to know how much experience people have if any with any of them.

1.Venus auto in sacramento.
I know this place has been around for ever so this may be my default place to go to.

2. Jdm engine bay in san leandro
Newplace that's popped up within the last year. Hearing mixed reviews about this place so I dunno

3. Redco.jp in like bum fuck nowhere Fresno area I think.
Pictures of their engines are super clean looking so I wonder if anyone has experience with them.

Any input?

heard nothing but bad about "jdm engine bay". if i was in the market for a jz i would consider out-of-state options that are more reputable honestly.

any out of state importers that come to mind? i only chose the local shops that i readily know because i would like to go and see the motor for myself. However if an out of state shop has an awesome rep then i'd consider it.

I feel like Venus used to try and pawn off their junk shit on me. Probably cause Im white. Or because i was young.

Fortunately for you, you're neither young, nor white.

Depending on your timing I (we/Wolfreign) may have a solution for you.

Currently at Wolfreign we are importing Skylines and other Japanese classics, but are planning on having a shipment of engines in the near-ish future.

There was a shop in east coast I remember a couple people getting motors from after having bad luck with Venus too many times. I've been googling trying to find the website, but I can't remember the name. =___=
