🤦🏻‍♂️Jesus, not one good review. Guess I’ll stay clear of them. I did have a funny feeling about this based on the site. So glad I checked the reviews because I was definitely about to place an order.

Was about to order NV3550 “performance trans” for my TJ. $990. Sorry you guys got stuck but thanks for the heads up. As They say If it sounds to good to be true – it probably is.

I have been fighting these guys for months! I purchased a 4r100 from them. My card was billed immediately and 3 months later still no transmission or phone call.

My buddy bought a complete short block motor For his Pick-up truck from them and received a 12hp Kohler motor for a lawnmower instead. He too is dealing with the same issue if no refund and no returned calls. The awful part is that we both mailed the guy our cores that I’m sure we will never see again.

Was really hyped about possibly doing business with this company due to the appeal of having a transmission with “high performance parts”, but like the others reviews here I noticed that they had no formal address listed on the website and just two measly reviews, one of which has a grammar error in it. Started digging into the website even more and it’s riddled with spelling errors and grammar mistakes. I know that’s not really a correlation with good transmission rebuilding, but the website looks so good at first glance. Dig a little deeper and then you start to wonder how something that looks so nice has so many minor errors in it. It didn’t sit well with my gut. Long story short I found this guide website and have somewhat had my suspicions confirmed. Be very careful with with XP, there might be a reason why the deals are so good….

I bought a Jeep transmission for a customer from these guys because they were running a sale. My card was billed immediately but took 3 weeks to receive transmission. When I called customer service to inquire, the guy was very abrasive and impatient with me. I will never use again.

While searching for a replacement shortblock for my 5.0 i came across XP. Seems like good prices people should be buying these engines up like crazy. But no reviews online? Everything deleted on facebook page. Ummmmm no thanks.This has led me to other websites that seem legit. Trust your gut, shop around and dont fall for the ON SALE tactics this shady company uses.

No reviews for these guys anywhere but here. They have 2 reviews on their website and even they are hidden. Comments on their Facebook page have all been deleted except 1 which is one of the 2 reviews on their website. The fact that they used a Residential address before and now use a PO Box sounds similar to shady tactics that were being used by motor companies a while back. I’ll pay the extra money rather than risk getting scammed by these guys.

The WORST decision I could have made to get a complete long block 4.3 roller Chevy motor from this company!! Dose not stand by warranty . The front seal needed to be replaced in the 1st 500 miles. Rear seal now leaking with 4500 miles. The top end sounds like a clapped out 300,000 mile motor but only has 4700 miles on it !!! I will NEVER do business with an out of state Crate motor company again !!
Replacing the motor I recieved from Extreme Performance Auto with only 4837 miles TOTAL JUNK !!
