Engine Lab free quote buttonEngine Lab of Tampa is "The Source" for Top Quality Rebuilt Engines!
Engine Lab specializes in remanufacturing the highest quality engines available for automotive, performance, marine, and industrial uses.   All work is done on-site at our remanufacturing facility in Tampa, Florida. Our ASE Certified Machinists build each engine to OEM Specifications. 

A rebuilt engine is one that has been remanufactured and restored to quality standards using precision machining
procedures and parts designed and manufactured for a particular engine application. 


Frequently, the quality of a rebuilt engine exceeds that of the engine that was installed as original equipment.  The procedures for remanufacturing an engine are numerous, extensive and thorough; involving cleaning, machining and installing new and reconditioned components.
