    You mean "USDM" , and yes like I said in your other post. USDM Honda engines are just as good as JDM's. Give maybe 1-5 HP. So its not worth the extra cash just to say "It's JDM y0!"

    Thats BS. The only difference in the USDM and JDM engines is some minor restrictions. They are built with the same parts, probably by the same type of machines. All the parts come from Japan anyways so whats the difference?

    These Minor Restictions? Does It Effect The Performance And Allowing Other Modifications?

    No. Like I said maybe 1-5 HP. Which is not even noticeable. No offence, but dont listen to DMeTRIUS cause there is no differece in quality and only minute differences in looks. Such as...

    USDM
    [​IMG]

    JDM
    [​IMG]

    How different are they really? Cosmetically the valve covers are the only difference. If you were that hard up for "JDM", it would probably be cheaper just get a USDM engine and then get a JDM valve cover. Unless you get a great deal, or just have money to burn, going JDM is a waste of money if you ask me.

    i agree .... dont listen to dmetrius ... but personally in my opinion japan is up on the us in quality ... as far as price u're looking for more ... simply because of the transportation costs ... is it worth it?? ... depends on what u're looking to do to ur car ... but u said fuck car shows ... so nah ... if u just wanna make it faster than whatever advantage u get from the jdm is negligible ... but i would see about dropping an integra engine in there ... if possible ... prolly not ... but hell it's worth a look

    I'll tell you what man. Do some searching, and get whatever is cheapest with the lowest miles.

    Contrary to what DMeTRIUS is saying, there is no difference in quality between the two engines. The are both the same thing built by the same company with some emmisions differences, and minor cosmetic differences on the valve covers as I pointed out.

    Actually somthing to think about is that with a USDM engine you have a lot better chance of knowing the engine history as opposed to getting somthing from japan you have no clue about. Like I said man, get whats cheapest with the lowest miles.
