Customer Feedback

"I have had many engines built and have used many automotive machine shops in the Portland area. These guys came highly recommended from some guys at the Woodburn race track so I made the drive to there shop. First thing I took note of was how clean the shop was, to me this made a statement that they take pride in thier work. I was shocked at how quickly they said they could rebuild my engine, Dennis called me every step of the way to recommend parts that would give me better performance and even talked me into some better pistons which where less expensive than the ones I thought I needed. These guys were professional, fair priced, and even saved me money! I am very picky and am not new to the automotive industry. I will tell everyone I know about the good folks at DVC, they renewed my faith in quality and customer service. Thanks from one good ole boy to another!"

Breaking in a re-manufactured engine is a painless task. Basically just avoid lugging and prolonged same speed driving for the first 500 miles. This just means avoid any long trips during the break-in. The first oil change should be made at or close to the first 500 miles and after that every 3 months or 3000 miles. Check your oil at least every time you get gas during the first 3000 miles as your newly re-manufactured engine may use some oil. This is due to the rings breaking in and is completely normal. Watch for any leaks or engine lights. If you notice either please bring your vehicle in immediately, remember it is better to be safe than sorry. It is quite common for an engine to use a little oil during the break-in period so check your oil frequently. You should also change your anti-freeze every 2 years or 24k miles.
