Unbelievable. If I was shipping something like that I'd surround it in plywood you can never assume the shipper won't go total caveman on the package.

Didnt think they were that fragile. Adding wood to the box will cost more.

Alrighty, they accepted the RMA request, so I'll ship it out tomorrow via...FedEx. They said they'll ship out a replacement as soon as tracking shows it's in transit.

Welp, apparently the head is now on back-order so GPG is opting to cancel the replacement and give me a refund. It'll be about $75 more to buy the head locally but hopefully no more shipping damage...there's allegedly one unit in Baltimore (doubtful), and four backordered across the country. Looks like I'll be waiting about a month...once I get that pesky Suzuki out, I'll start ripping this one apart.

Is it possible to find a complete engine?

See, couple problems with that.

1. The head I'm sourcing is specifically redesigned for the QR25DE inthis exact application: Nissan Altima Hybrid. It does not supersede the regular head P/N. Nissan screwed up when they used the standard, corporate QR25DE in here and got the exhaust valve carboning problem.
2. Labor to swap engines is significantly more than doing head, timing, and oil reseal (save for RMS).

Is it possible to find a complete engine?
