JDM motors will swap right into our USDM cars with no problem. You can swap Type-I and Type-II all day long without any problems either. JDM never had a Type-II motor, but they come stock with around 220-225hp.
Pacific Engine Importers in Atlanta is a bit closer to VA...got a tranny from them...really good pricing and warranty...shipped to Detroit for only 75 bux too....they had several engines and trannies last year....don't have the phone number, but you should be able to call info
I talked to a friend of mine here who works for a company in sales selling used and new engines for all makes of cars. He is going to let me know tomorrow if he can start hooking up engines for the forum members. I will keep you guys posted.
Is there even any performance gains from going to a JDM engine anyway? I mean, Type I or II engines arent they pretty much the same? I've seen lots of auctions and stuff for JDM engines, but nobody will say what the difference is, no specs or anything. I'd like to know what the difference is myself if I were the one buying.

If that is the case my current engine type 1 is running in perfect condition which i would gladly get rid of to get a JDM engine that has more power! But what other mods do 1 must make with the computer conrtolled car?
My 1983 turbo diesel 300CD Benz is modified which is easy! But legends with computers scare the hell outta me ! thanks
