Think you know the truth about Aftermarket Rebuild Kits? We'd bet you'd be surprised.

It’s no secret, rebuilding your rig is one of the most labor (and wallet) intensive repairs out there. Sure, you want your engine to last another million miles but you also want the best price; so what should you choose- OEM or Aftermarket? 

When it comes to engine parts, the aftermarket often gets a bad rep. The idea that aftermarket retailers sell cheap parts with zero warranty, delivered in a beat-up box written in another language couldn’t be further from the truth. HHP is here to set the record straight; we only sell Rebuild Kits with new parts, zero core charges, and a 2-Year Parts and Labor Warranty. On top of only offering premium quality parts, we also make sure you save up to 50% off OEM prices. So, when it comes to your rebuild, what’s left to want? 

Need a little extra proof? Let’s talk Rebuild Kits.

  • At HHP, we make sure you receive all new parts made to OEM specifications, equal or better quality compared to the OE, at a much lower price. Since your rebuild kit is made with all new parts, no core charge. Giving you more cash in your pocket!
  • Ever hear of the Little Engine that could? I'm pretty sure he has this rebuild kit with the same piston pins hardened and tempered for improved strength and wear resistance. And his rig is still running!
