Did you pay the shipping costs? Says on the link provided item doesn't ship until paid.

And express it the only one that should get it delivered to you directly according to their info.

That’s a good point I should’ve pointed out that paragraph as it states why the AliEx tracking number isn’t the correct one.

But yeah, confirmed with them prior to ordering that the shipping is included in the total cost. So the original cost includes the shipping. Unless I’m getting duped. Lol

Any large payments through PayPal for items I still use a credit card, as my (and most) CC's offer additional buyer protection.

I guess I'm a little more risk tolerant. I wouldn't sweat it, my money's on the square that says it'll show up.

Wonder how US Customs is going to handle an engine. What are the duties? Is there documentation or approval that needs to go to/be received from the EPA?

Never been an issue for me in the past ordering used JDM engines back in the day. Pay the fees, pallet shows up.

someone will be filling out an EPA form, since they're selling it as a CNTA and not one of the ROW motors. presumably this isn't the first motor the seller has shipped to the US.

This is probably their work around to the customs issue ~ will it work? 🤷‍♂️

Why would the VW logo be a problem? Seems like an 'unofficial' engine would cause more trouble with customs

Covering something that would prevent it from going through customs in order to get it through customs kinda sounds illegal...
It’s just a lil putty..

I’m more worried about the putty covering a hole in the block like in my old block lol

So I confirmed with seller prior to receiving this, they said they had sent out a brochure of all their offerings. Looks like that’s what I received.

Still waiting for an update on the other tracking number. I should have another update later this evening regarding its whereabouts.

For the sake of transparency, I’ll probably inform them that I will be opening a dispute simply as a form of protection on my end. Although their communication has been pretty spot on, you just never know.

Are you supposed to circle the one you want and send it back?
