Product testing

Once your product is properly matched with a Honda engine, Honda will thoroughly test the engine application. We look at many different aspects effecting long term engine durability, including:

  • Vibration

  • Oil temperature

  • Engine loading

  • Operating RPM

  • Mounting configuration

  • Wire routing

The goal is to ensure the highest level of long term customer satisfaction. Should Honda find any concerns, we will work closely with you to resolve them. Once you receive approval, you will be ready to order engines for production.

“We’ve built the relationship with Honda to become a true partnership so we rely on Honda and their service.”
