This Warranty covers any failure of the Engine or loose components supplied with the engine kit which result, under normal use and service, from a defect in material or factory workmanship ("Warrantable Failure").

The R2.8 Turbo Diesel crate engine is NOT a direct bolt-in engine replacement for any specific vehicle. Before purchasing, considerations should be made for cooling package modifications, air conditioning, appropriate transmission pairing and adaptability, engine mounting, intake and charge air cooler plumbing, wiring integration and other mechanical/electrical modifications that may arise when undergoing a major vehicle modification. It is recommended that all major vehicle modifications are performed by professionals. *Installation of a crate engine does not necessarily increase the vehicle's original payload and towing ratings. Please read all emissions information for the desired part number prior to purchase as Federal emissions laws apply.
Due to state / provincial law restrictions, these engines are not currently available for purchase in the state of Texas, state of West Virginia or the province of Quebec.
Warranty service with respect to the engines and loose components will not be available in the states of Texas and West Virginia.
The Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel has demonstrated (in a representative vehicle with a manual transmission) through the testing procedures prescribed in 40 CFR Part 86 to meet EPA’s Tier 1 LDT2, LDT3, and LDT4 end of useful life emissions standards. The same vehicle also demonstrates Tier 0 LDT1/LDV end of useful life emissions standards. This means that the R2.8 generally is suitable for Model Year 1999 or earlier light duty trucks and Model Year 1993 or earlier passenger cars. However, the suitability of the R2.8 engine to any vehicle is the responsibility of the installer and may depend on state or area laws. Installation of this part in a vehicle or application for which it is not intended may violate U.S. and Canadian laws and regulations related to motor vehicle emissions and will void the applicable engine warranty. Check your state and local emissions requirements before purchasing. • U.S. EPA • CARB
