Default Anyone used Rocky Engines to buy LS

Has anyone ever heard of or used a place called Rocky Engines to buy a swap motor from. They have great pricing on LS and Coyote motors but it is almost too good of pricing and I'm not sure if they are a scam or not. Any info would be much appreciated

I'm not familiar with them either. I see what you're saying though after browsing their site. $3800 for a complete LS7 pullout?

Red Flags right here tho.....

Another thing I don't understand is most scams only have 1 or 2 items but they have hundreds of different motors for sale. I found some info that said they had been in business since 2007 but still can't trust it

Any reviews? I’m not buying an engine from Indonesia, no matter what they want for it.

Can't find any reviews. The company is in Indonesia but pretty sure the motors are here because shipping was only 200.00

The description and pic of the 2015 ZL LSA is copied from an eBay ad from roughly 4 years ago. SLP was the seller if I remember right....
