I am a veteran boater and and employee at "rwbimini cruise line" I was referred to Marc to come to our ship and asses engine problems with the rescue boats equipped with Japanese outboards. Not only did he solve our issues he serviced them immediately with a great work ethic. Clean/organized/and affordable. Highly recommend this company .

This is our third engine with Xcessive Engines. In 2015 our first engine was for our 2007 Ford Expedition, they provided us a great product and fast turnaround. Engine still running strong.This January (2016) we repower our twin 454 boat, engines are running great, took them about 15 days to have both ready instead of the 12 days which was a small delay however I am very happy with my engines.

I am a 25yr Boater and owned about 16 boats and the issues that follow. I used several shops in south Florida and i can say these guys set the bar and have that firmness that boaters need. telling you the right price and sticking to it. also the quality of the labor is amazing. 5stars all the way!! thanks Marc!

Xcessive Engines
First off, it takes a lot for me to write a bad review. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt and understand most things. That being said, my experience, so far, with this company is: Worse customer service and integrity of any company I have ever dealt with. 100% customer satisfaction should be taken off of their website. Especially the phone numbers and email addresses. They are useless.I ordered and paid for a reman 4.3L Mercruiser, with timing cover and water pump on May 13. When I talked to Rick he told me that, if I purchased that it would be 7 days to build and due to the time of year, they were behind a little, but that I should receive it before Memorial day. Didn't have a problem with that. After June 1st and still no motor, I starting calling and when I did reach him, I was told he had received a bad batch of heads, which he had to send back and wait on replacements. Took almost 4 weeks from when I bought the motor, to receive it. Had to almost beg for a correct tracking number. After I finally received the motor, the water pump and timing cover, were not with it. I contacted Rick and was told that they were coming from the manufacturer. I would have thought they would come with the motor, since their website states that they keep them in stock. I was also told that they would be over-nighted to me. Took another week to receive them. Would think that since I had already paid for them and they were not going to be installed by Xcessive, they would have been here before the motor or at least with it. Had a hard time getting a tracking number on those too.Did not receive valve cover gaskets in the gasket set. Had to wait for those to be sent and when I did get them, they were the wrong one's. Had to purchase locally.Everything was installed, torqued properly, proper fluids used, following installation instructions from Xcessive. Within 10 min. of first starting, oil was full of water. Seems like all the bad heads didn't get shipped back for replacement.I and my wife have sent numerous emails and phone calls for almost 2 months now, with no response. At least before I received the motor, I could get someone on the phone, sometimes. Once I had the motor and parts, the ability to contact anyone or have anyone contact me, was gone.When I had to find a motor, I searched and found Xcessive. The price was within my budget, seemingly good warranty and after talking with Rick on the phone, I had a good feeling about the purchase. I thought this seemed like a good reliable, honest company. Get what you pay for, I guess. It sure looks like that you get the run around, put off and the shipping of the motor is delayed, so the 45 days to lodge a dispute with Paypal runs out and if they ignore you for 2 more years, then the 24 month warranty runs out, too. Once they have your money, they are done with you.Unless something happens to change my mind, my advice is, if you are thinking about buying a motor from a company that you can actually have contact with and lives up to what it advertises, look somewhere else.
Tips & Advices
With the proper maintenance and adherence to driving within in the guidelines of engine performance designations, remanufactured engines can last 100,000 miles or more. With modern technology, engine lifespans have dramatically increased over the years. It is not uncommon for engines to last 200,000- 300,000 miles, or more--before a rebuild or remanufacture is even necessary.
While remanufactured and crate engines are very similar, there are several key differences. The biggest difference is that crate engines are as close to new as possible, without actually being new. Everything internal is replaced, which is not always the case with a remanufactured engine. Second, crate engines do not have to meet factory original specs. Some are upgraded to high performance engines through specialty shops. Crate engines are ready for immediate installation. These factors tend to make their price point higher than for a remanufactured engine. Adherence to factory specs is the biggest difference; remanufactured engines are required to (with some exceptions), crate motors are not.
Remanufactured engines nearly always come with a warranty. There may be exceptions, so it is important to learn the specifics of the auto shop. There is no reason for a shop to not offer a warranty on what is basically a new engine. While not getting a warranty would be rare, confirm the engine comes with a warranty prior to making any commitment.
All gasoline and diesel engines, with some exceptions, are eligible to be remanufactured. Old, rare and out-of-stock engines, engines with cracked or damaged blocks, and specialty engines are examples of engines that might not be eligible to be remanufactured. Also to be considered are parts availability and a mechanic’s knowledge of a particular engine.  Most modern and popular engines are eligible. Lower- end production and rare engines might require specialty shops that work in these areas.
The most commonly remanufactured engine is the inline four-cylinder gasoline engine. It is the most mass-produced engine in the world and is the primary power plant in the most popular cars in the world, like the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, and the Ford Focus. The next most common remanufactured engine is the straight, or “‘inline” six, a six cylinder that is a larger and more powerful engine popular in many smaller, light duty trucks, SUVs, and an engine option in the Toyota Camry. The popularity of these cars and these engines makes them the highest in demand for remanufacture.
