What a gem! I was told I had a crack in my head gasket, so I decided to take my car to Castillo engine rebuilding. Turns out I was misdiagnosed and only had a valve issue. Thanks Efren, you really saved me a ton of money!

Honest, reliable, and AFFORDABLE!!!I have worked with Vince several times now. And every time he has gone on and beyond to help, and get my car, and boat back on the road or water. He has always been honest upfront and beyond reasonable on pricing. I'm a customer for life. If you want to work with a caring, honest, and AFFORDABLE family run shop then go and ask for Vince Jr. You won't regret it. I saw a review from March that was no where close to the truth. That guy sounds like a blood thirsty ambulance chaser of an attorney!!! Don't read or trust that kind of review. These guys are LAGIT!!!!

Please stay away from this shop. You are better off searching for a reputable speed shop in Orange County. These money hungry people will only take your money and play dumb until they milk your money. In addition please contact the BAR if you feel like you're not receiving the right service. If you need an attorney who specializes in automotive repair fraud, contact me. Do not -- I repeat -- do not go to this shop that's run by Vince, Efrain, some old dude who I believe is the dad, they lack automotive experience and are definitely not trustworthy because as mentioned, you will get sucked every penny. Collect all documentation.
This shop is place of hell where you and your car will not receive the service needed.

#1 place to get any engine. Just call Vince JR and you’ll be convinced at Castillos they know engines. I got my 01Cobra TT setup, I was more than happy with my new setup and they also fixed my Cayenne Turbo, right now I got my new project on the way with the MAN Vince JR.

CASTILLO'S ENGINE REBUILDING

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH JOSHUAPAUL, AS SOON AS I STEPPED FOOT IN THE SHOP, I KNEW THAT THEY WERE GONNA TAKE CARE OF ME, VINCE JR MADE ME FEEL CONFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT THAT MY ENGINE WAS GONNA GET BUILD PROPERLY AND THE WAY I WANTED AT A SHOCKING LOW PRICE!! I'VE BEEN TAKING MY BUSINESS TO CASTILLO'S ENGINE RIBUILDING FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS. I GAINED MORE THEN JUST MAX HORSEPOWER ON MY ENGINES, I ALSO ESTABLISHED A GREAT FRIENDSHIP WITH THE CASTILLO'S CRUE. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR JUST A BASIC OVERHAUL OR YOU'RE TRYING TO BUILD A ALL OUT RACE ENGINE, CASTILLO'S IS A GOOD PLACE TO START, JUST STOP BY AND TALK TO VINCE JR AND I GUARANTEE YOU'LL BE CONVINCED.. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING VINCE JR

Highly Recommended Engine Shop!!

I took my 1980 chevy el camino with a 305 engine and had it rebuild, it was smoking and back firing alot...when I took it in they were real into detail and explained all the steps that need to be done. they did the job in about a week and it was still tripping and had a loud ticking sound....so they gave me there word and told me to drive it for about 1mth to see if the knocking sound would go away and to see if i get the perofrmance i needed....sure enough the sound didnt go away and my performance sucked....so i took the car back and they put in a BRAND NEW MOTOR!!! I was so happy that they keep there word and warranty.... Know im burning up the streets of SOUTH GATE, lol....and im loving the peroformance of my BRAND NEW 305...They do good owrk and are kool guys to talk to and hang out with....the only bad thing is that they dont call you when they say they are going to call you, but i do understand that they have alot of busniess ...but will highly recommend them...

only place I will take an engine

As soon as I walked in, I knew I was at the right place...a place that knows how to rebuild engines. I felt like I was home at this family run business. They have been there over 25 years, and have low overhead, so their prices are low. But the quality of their work is high. It's a rare place where you get more than what you pay for. As I restore my other cars, I will take those engines there too.

Since nothing is perfect, my only 'complaint' is they probably won't call you back when they say they will. They are quite busy. So I just called them myself as appropriate.
