If you want the “best of the best” at an unbeatable price with great service and a big guarantee; you came to the right place. We bridge the gap between the best engine builders in the country and the honest consumer who takes pride in their vehicle. It’s time you make a statement under YOUR hood.

 

Majority of the industry lacks in quality parts, newer machinery and customer service.  It’s important to look for name brand parts, find real reviews, and do your homework to make sure each company backs up their work.  When doing business with a quality company the expense may be higher, but in the end, you save yourself from a bad experience that could be costly.  For some, spending an extra $500-$1k might not seem ideal, but what happens when you go for a cheap engine?  In most cases, you end up spending that $1k on new parts, more labor, or even worse – a new engine.

West Coast Engines is one of the leading online aftermarket engine suppliers in the United States based in San Diego and Washington. Only the utmost quality and leading technology is in every one of our remanufactured engine with American name brand parts such as Federal Mogul, Melling, Pioneer, Clevite, Manley, Eagle Industries and more. All remanufactured engines are backed with factory-direct nationwide warranties, built in America, can be shipped anywhere nationwide (except Hawaii), AND on average takes under one week until it lands on your doorstep from the time of purchase.

What sets us apart from the competition is the people that work here and the culture we provide.  Our customers are the ones who do a lot of research, sometimes years.  With so much of our business being word of mouth, we take a lot of pride ensuring our people are taken care of.  We build a customized, quality product with fast, friendly and flexible service.  Having our customers on our side has allowed us to take our company to the next level, provide for a larger community and expand our business – the right way.  Our success comes from your happiness and we’d love for you to be a part of our success!

YOUR EXPERIENCE.

Buying an engine can be the most time consuming, complicated, and intimidating process you will ever encounter.  Our customer demographic are good, average people that are passionate about their vehicles and looking for a good deal.  Major retailers offer no customization or passion into their build.  Machine shops typically take months to build and are difficult to work with… not to mention they charge an arm-and-a-leg.  This is where we come in.

We bridge the gap between the best builders in the country and the consumer demand for superior service, quality, and speedy delivery at an unbeatable price. Whether you’re a master mechanic, ex-engine builder, or a regular car enthusiast (like most of us), we would love to earn your business and show you why we are the future!

“Being a San Diego native, it’s incredible to be working for a company that represents the West Coast and all its luxuries.  When you think West Coast you have the idea of ambitious goal-seeking opportunities with a laid-back vibe.  That’s how I feel about the dynamic at West Coast Engines.  We are easy-going, but our ambition to do great things is overwhelming and drives our professional attitude with the same goal in mind: help the people and provide a quality product.  That’s why I love being a part of a company that checks all the boxes in what I value as a person.”
