Glossary of terms

A “Consumer” is a person who buys:

Any type of goods or services costing up to $40,000. Goods or services costing more than $40,000 which would normally be for personal, domestic or household use, or goods which consist of a vehicle or trailer used mainly to transport goods on public roads.

“Goods” is the description given to components or items supplied for the purpose of being included in the rebuilding of an automobile engine for high performance use.

“Components” - see goods above

“Short motor” is a sub assembly of an engine, comprising an engine block, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, rings and bearings, plus additional components as specified in the individual short motor item description. A short motor is part of the rebuilding of a complete engine and requires the inclusion of a number of other components (supplied by Horsepower Junkie or other parties) to complete the sub assembly into a complete engine. A short motor cannot be test run as it is incomplete when supplied to the consumer.

“Long motor” is a short motor to which a cylinder head, sump, oil pump, camshafts and cam drive system has been added. This type of engine can be test run and all of our engines are subsequently test run to verify all components are operating correctly.

“Test Run” is the actual operating of an engine under its own steam for the purposes of ensuring the engine is operating correctly and within all specifications for pressures, temperatures, etc. Oil analysis is also undertaken after 2 hours of engine operation to ascertain no contaminants are in the engine. Re tensioning of critical components, replacement of the oil and filter also takes place when an engine is test run.
