Rebuilt vs. Remanufactured

Rebuilt vs. Remanufactured

While many people confuse rebuilt products with re-manufactured products, let us tell you what Center State Engine provides.

With Center State Engine remanufactured components, you get tolerances that meet or exceed those of the OEM and a nationwide warranty that in many cases is better than a new component warranty. Completely remanufactured…for a lot less than you might think.

But, whatever you call that engine you're having put in your boat, you should make sure that you're getting exactly what you think you're getting.

Here's how we differentiate rebuilt from remanufactured:


To recondition by cleaning, inspecting and replacing severely worn or broken parts. Serviceable parts are reused within the manufacturer's acceptable wear limits.


To make as close to new as possible. Wearable parts are automatically replaced. All core material is closely inspected and checked against original equipment specifications for correct dimensional tolerances. Replacement parts are new and made in the same production process as original equipment.

Testing is performed to manufacturer specifications and original production standards. Choose for yourself, but know that Center State Engines will only provide completely re-manufactured engines — or any of our other re-manufactured components — and that you can drive away from your technician's shop with confidence if you have an Center State Engine engine in your Boat.
