Default Found used engine on ebay. Trusted Seller???

Hey guys I found a used engine on ebay from the company The Speedline Group. The ebay seller is arleyleghorn. Is this a trusted used engine company or is the a screwjob sale?

Thanks, Bambam

Do they have an actual warehouse? Do they have other listings with different engines/transmissions? Or do they have a bunch of other Supra Parts? If they actually have a listed stock (i.e. the engines/tranny's), then they are probably a motor redistributor; they probably get JDM used engines and sell them here in the U.S. for a little bit more. If it's just a bunch of Supra parts, then they're probably parting a car out, so they might not be very reputable.... In either case, these are older engines so no matter where you get it from there's some risk involved. You don't know how it was taken care of (or not). My opinion (having bought a rock-solid JDM 7MGE off eBay), is read feedback, check out how professional the listing is, and look for a customer service number. Any good business should have one. Then you could ask them about their stock and find out if they seem like people you should deal with. Also keep in mind that PayPal offers some buyer protection (such as the motor not being how it was stated, not receiving your item, etc.), and these services take time but are fairly effective.

I hope this helped your decision some.
