Never buy a mechanical part from LKQ!!!!
ATTN! THIS IS A LKQ SUBSIDIARY! This should be all you need to know! The gearhead folks will point out their long tradition of remanufacturing engines, but it does not matter a bit, because WHEN you have a problem, you will be dealing with LKQ the Corporate Behemoth for your warranty issues!

My first Gearhead engine failed at just 6k miles, then the lower intake manifold gasket failed after after about 40k miles because the gasket they included was cheap plastic! LKQ insisted that because it was my mechanic who installed the intake manifold with the cheap gasket they INCLUDED, that they could not reimburse me under the warranty!

For the record, my mechanic will not buy order or install any mechanical LKQ part, because of their poor quality and their terrible warranty process that is tilted towards saving money and not helping the customer!

The new set of gaskets that I am installing will be the proper metal ones that my mechanic prefers, not the cheap ones favored by LKQ and it's subsidiaries! Unfortunately it will cost me $700-900 because I learned my lesson the hard way!
