Wow!!!! Its been a long time since I've posted on here. Only because I've been without my legend for the engine is gone. I know, this a stupid wuestion but, should I get JDM or US? I need to get my Legend back on the road.
Wow, that's a great-looking coupe! Factory foglights, too. Corey has a good point, not only are the JDM engines quite inexpensive (one on eBay right now is $395 before shipping), but they usually have around 35K miles and run a good 15hp more than the U.S. engines.
The JDM C20T is gonna need it's ECU to run the Wing Turbo. The ones that are being sold on eBay don't come with the proper ECU. But there are the JDM C27 that has really low mileage. But if you live in a state that requires emission, you'll gonna need to add a couple of things to make it pass smog.

I think Japan has a tax code which penalizes older vehicles. Probably a failed attempt by statist nitwits to jump start their economy, similar to our cash for clunkers nonsense. The keynesian broken window fallacy.
That's also the source of all those micro trucks popping up on farms everywhere. And they don't (or at least didn't when they first starting shipping them here) have to meet any safety or emissions standards because they are classified as "agricultural equipment."
