Re: Remanufactured 258s for only $550????
There was a pretty big engine rebuilder out of Los Angeles that supplied engines to Napa, Auto Zone, Kragen. They were called 'Bonded'. It was a pretty big outfit. Apparently, they went out of business because they didn't reserve enough resources for warranty returns. I know because I had one that went bad, but they were out of business.
It's not a lot of money you're talking about, so it seems to be a toss up. The guy at Napa said they had a really good experience with those engines, but thought the company grew too fast and couldn't manage cash flow. FWIW.
