These longblocks are not to be confused with reconditioned, re manufactured or stock engines. 

These longblocks are hand built by Dan Simpson, they are not production line built. Dan sources the best quality components available from the UK, Europe and the USA and all are tried and tested over many years. In addition all parts are checked for quality of manufacture and machining. Parts are carefully cleaned and assembled to conform to strict VW tolerances. All of the crankshaft and flywheel combinations are assembled and balanced in house also by Dan. 

In building engines in house in this manor, Dan is able to carefully quality control both parts and labour throughout the build without the need to outsource any of the work. 

At Dan Simpson VW Engines we will not use cast or cheap quality Chinese parts. For this reason Dan only uses top quality new or genuine original VW parts which have been re-worked to an “as new standard”. To this end he feels he is providing the best cranks, rods etc. available on the market today.
