Yesterday I had to pick up a car in the midlands (Supra) and I had some time left to visit MIJ Performance. I thought I would visit a 'bedroom parts dealer on ebay' but it turned out it's a freaking big shop with 7 lifts and a lot of projects and work going on. Very impressive. Looked very good. Don't know their work quality but at least someone who is aproaching the business seriously instead of having an old shed in the mud (don't say names).

Yeah, here is quote from SO forum, this guy bought engine of them on ebay :

"Finally engine started. It was nightmare. Oil leak, water leak, leak from power steering pump. Unfortunately engine that was bought in good faith, was put together with others engines. So no any gaskets, not enough bolts, a lot of problems. We needed 9 days to find all the problems, and seal up. I was depressed. A lot of money spent, and didn't know when car will run, and if there any new problems will appear."

I ain’t a fan of MIJ, but i did see that car run a 10 and on the run a drive shaft snapped as well. They have spent thousands and thousands on it and they also had a guy from dubal that built it and ran it for him and it still has problems.

I have not heard anything good about them yet, used them once and never had a problem
