I overheated my car & the shop i normally take my car to told me to go to five star engines. I called & they answered all my questions & addressed all my concerns. They were extremely professional and they really go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied as a customer. It is often difficult to find people you can trust with your vehicle, but five star is definately one of those places. Their workmanship, customer service, affordability, and dedication to you and your car are refreshing. I would highly recommend their service!!!!!!

Thank you Five Star for the top quality 327 crate engine in my '57 Chevrolet. I purchased last summer and have over 3000 miles on the engine without issue. The engine runs like a swiss watch. I was leary about purchasing over the internet and I appreciate the great experience. The engine was delivered early and packaged beautifully. Chris spent the time to help with my first engine installation. I will be a repeat customer for a future project. I would recommend to all looking for a great engine! Thanks again, Tom

By far the best trouble free transaction I have experienced!!! The engine expired in my Ford Expedition and I called around for quotes. I received an estimate over the phone and chose to bring my vehicle in for an engine replacement. Five Star completed the work in 5 days!, under their estimate. The Expedition runs awesome and I get better fuel mileage! Thank you for all of your top quality work, my baby runs like new! I would, and have recommended Five Star Engine Exchange to others! A+++.

I bought a 327 engine got the engine put in my 1966 nova ss and less then 500 miles it was knocking. Called chris and he called the freight company and had the engine picked up and shipped back to five star engine. Chris informed me that it was a rod bearing # 8 to be exact, they repaired and shipped the engine back to me and I have had no problems, it runs great and really strong!! It was built using the thumper cam and it sounds great and turns heads every where I go. Thanks Chris

I read some of the more negative postings and found them to be anonymous and with no contact information. Interesting. I had the extreme good fortune to discover Five Star Engines in Craigs List. As a matter of fact they were the only one out of 3 other companies that responded to my inquiry and I am very glad about that.

I have very special needs in that my car came into California from Nevada and would not meet the ridiculious smog requirements. This required me to change my existing motor and replace it with a smog exempt motor. Chris Smith worked with my special needs every step of the way. We were in constant contact almost daily until I actually took my car to Glendale, AZ and had them install the new engine. The experience was flawless from the beginnig. They were actually waiting for me on the appointed day and by that afternoon the old motor was out and new one installed. By noon the following day the car was running and driving like never before and I was on my way home by midday on the second day. I would and have absolutely recommended Five Star Engines to anyone I know. This is a reputable company owned and run by generations of racers and car guys. The customer service was Five Star !!

I can be contacted at phatmike@roadrunner.com if you heve any further questions.

I bought a Ford 302 Crate Motor from 5 star last June to put into my 1968 Mercury Cougar. This is one of, if not the worst purchase I have ever made in my life. I ordered the motor and they said it would be ready in 13 days. Long story short, it was finally delivered nearly two months after the initial date they had set for the shipment. When the engine came it was a beautiful engine, but thats where my love affair with it ends. The motor was gently broken in, including all the fluid changes. I was the only driver so I know for a fact the break in was done right and gentle. Then I had all these problems:

-Broken rocker stud: 5 Star cut major corners and put the rocker studs in like hot rodders from the 50's had. Rather than sealing them in properly they put a pin through them to hold them in place. I had to replace all 16 of them for a grand total of $2,200.

-Broken Rocker Arm: 5 Star installed stock Ford rocker arms on an aggressive high lift cam shaft. This poor judgement and craftsmanship caused a rocker arm to blow into 3 pieces. I had to buy a new $200 set of rocker arms that were capable of withstanding the camshaft.

-Misaligned Valves: When I first got the motor the valves were seriously out of alignment. If I had not caught this, it could have caused much greater problems down the road.

-Cracked Pulley: One of the pulleys that 5 Star installed ended up cracking. It was the lower crank pulley and it was just 5 Star using cheap parts.

Everytime I called this company asking them to live up to their warranty, which I had signed and sent into them, promising an unlimited mileage one year warranty, they just put you off or told you the mechanic wasn't there. They never lived up to it and the one time we did contact the head mechanic he promised to pay and the money never came. When we called back they never talked to us again. They have exhibited poor craftsmanship and poor business practices. DO NOT trust this company, go someplace else. You will thank yourself for it. They have great reviews on Ebay, but that is due to the fact that 6 months later you cannot leave feedback.

I purchased a 325 hp 350 from five star for my boat. Aluminum heads,aluminum intake,balanced crate engine with a marine cam. HAVE 65 HRS ON THE ENGINE and broke it in according to their specs. The engine runs flawless with lots of hp. Would buy another from them any time. The price was great and the customer service was great. If you have any doubts about the engines they build e-mail me gkielczewski@netscape.net I can assure you that Im a happy customer.
