JDM Engines For Your Import

When it comes to the imports sold in North America, very few cars have come with the performance engines often found in Japanese and European market versions. Honda's venerable Civic, from 1992 through 2000, had very few models with desireable engines. Nissan's 240SX was in a similar situation. The 240SX was sold in Japan as the Silvia, and featured a 2 liter turbo engine. The North American market 240SX came with a lackluster at best 2.4 liter truck engine. It's become common place to swap out boring, North American spec engines in favor of their high performance, or at least higher performance, Japanese counterparts. Engine swaps have become so common, that there are probably thousands of small companies which specialize in importing engines from Japan, that can be easily swapped into a North American car in one day by a competent do-it-yourselfer. All of the engines listed on this page are from Japan, unless otherwise noted.
