SteamSpeed Warrnty Information

[overview]

First and foremost, we here at SteamSpeed are car enthusiasts.  We know the frustration first hand of not getting the result we wanted or having an aftermarket part fail for whatever the reason.  No one is happy when that happens.  In general, we mostly avoid the situation with a low failure rate.  We accomplish this thorough OEM or better manufacturing, engineering, packaging, etc.; however, our products sometimes do need repairs.  

All of our products come with a 1 year warranty against all manufacturing defects.  That means if your turbo or other SteamSpeed product needs to be repaired because of a manufacturing defect; we’ll cover it free of charge.  Read the detailed warranty information for the full specifics.

Not all failures are manufacturing related.  In fact most turbo failures are not manufacturing related; however, we still intend to take care of you and get your car back on the road as quickly as possible.  The some common reasons for turbo repairs are: oil starvation due to a lack of oil supply, foreign object damage, general wear on the bearings due to high shaft speeds, contaminated oil with a eg. a spun rod bearing, etc.  These are not related to manufacturing, and are not covered under the warranty; still, please contact us.  We want to help you get your turbo fixed and build completed.  We will repair your Steam STX turbo at low cost because we are more interested in taking care of the customer than making a few bucks on a repair.

If you need to repair your SteamSpeed turbo, the repair is free if it is covered under warranty, or $300 for JB models, or $600 for BB models.  

If you have ANY questions about our products, please contact us prior to instalation or use.
