Yup, that company (Surefire) has not been providing decent, reliable engines for quite a few months. Quality control is terrible and while the warranty is pretty specific, good luck trying to get some satisfaction if something goes south.

You also have to remember, that are fine print in the warranty documentation. No engine manufacturer in their right mind will warranty replace an engine that was not properly installed, especially by amateur mechanics. Most consumers don't understand the procedures required to make sure an engine works out of the crate. For one, many consumers don't understand that there is a break-in period for practically every engine.

The exceptions are those from high end manufacturers who break-in the engines prior to shipping.

This process is exhaustive and causes the price of the engine to prohibitive to many consumers. So if you buy an engine that has never been rotated faster than 5 RPM, then you, as a consumer, have a lot of responsibility in ensuring that the engine does not explode.
