The best warranty is the one that you never need.. Our goal is to produce an engine that never needs a warranty. If you are someone who must have a piece of paper to make you feel better about a purchase, please hit the back button now~
All “stocker”, engines reconstructed by Flat Six Innovations come with a one year/ 12,000 mile conditional Warranty.
All Performer series engines (Stage 1/2/3) are sold for off the highway use only, and are not covered by any warranty, express or implied. These engines are sold with a warranty disclaimer that must be agreed to by the purchaser prior to project engagement.
Our Warranty is simple and straightforward and can be reviewed prior to the purchase of your Flat Six Engine at the time we create the Proposal that will detail your engine project. Basically all internally lubricated components within the engine are warranteed for exactly one year (not a day longer!) or 12,000 miles after the date/ mileage documented during engine completion, with only the following conditions being required:
-The engine must utilize our mandated engine oils and have documented services carried out at the points we dictate. Used oil analysis samples are required to be provided to us within 30 days of these services being carried out. Oil services are due at 1,500 miles or 6 months following reconstruction. The oil service intervals for our engine is 6 months/ 5,000 miles; whichever may come first. You will never again perform the “annual oil change” or follow the factory service intervals.
– No over- revs! We document over- rev data at the time of engine completion. This is from a rev range and engine operating hours perspective. Engines that have any over revs, at any range, post reconstruction will have their warrantee immediately revoked. No exceptions.
-The engine must not see any track service during the warranty period; this is to avoid driver error that could lead to a nasty situation. We consider “track service” any activity that is not carried out on a public street, to include DE, AX, time trials or anything other than normal street driving. Basically, if the activity requires the driver to wear a helmet, it is considered a “track activity”. The warranty is over at the exact moment that the first tire contacts the surface of a non-public street, or the driver dons a helmet.
All Performance street “Stage I” and “Track-Prepped Hi-Performance” Stage II, Stage III, Turbocharged and Competition engines are sold without warranty; express or implied.
The owners of these engines will be required to agree to warranty disclaimers accepting this condition during the proposal stage of the engine purchase, and again at the time the engine is delivered. The maximum amount of time these engines are warranted is limited to their testing periods while under the care and control of our specialized staff here at Flat 6 Innovations. The track breeds failures and anything can happen, if you agree to play on the track, you must assume the fact that you may only bring home your health and a steering wheel at the end of the day. If you cannot accept this; please refrain from track based activities.
Here we are direct and our goal is to create the best engine possible that doesn’t require a warranty. We treat others as we would like to be treated in any warranty type of situation. Our reputation of excellence has been gained through effectiveness, not fancy words on a piece of paper that leaves you with a false sense of security. If the direct, old fashioned way we state these facts to you isn’t something that you appreciate, our program might not be for you…
