Japan Domestic Market.
The engine is imported and produces more power than the ones here in the US.
Is it an H22? 25k miles, thing's literally brand new.
It looks like a good deal, I would search eBay for similar bargains and compare.

Re: JDM Engine and 5spd Trans..

Will the JDM trans bolt on my 98 Base engine? I would just buy everything stated in the above post WITHOUT the engine if I can use the trans from it.

Re: JDM Engine and 5spd Trans..

That sounds like a great price. If it has low miles like a reall imported JDM engine and what not I say get it especiallyt if you have an auto which I`m guessing you do. If the trans is LSD even better,

Re: JDM Engine and 5spd Trans..

The question is, is it 25k original miles? Or 25k miles since he swapped it in?

Re: JDM Engine and 5spd Trans..

it was indeed all JDM. I was told $1200 takes engine/trans/all accessories for the swap. the car was in process of being parted out so it was not able to be started. The lude was definitely set for racing.
I'm considering buying it. I just wish I heard it running.It has Pro2 Cams and RC440 injectors, MSD electronics, and other add ons. He told me $1500 takes the entire car, even delivered to my door.
I know people will say buy it, but I feel I'm in over my head with modified equipment. I've been out of the loop on cars for more than a decade, as I've been more a soccer dad and actually love driving my minivan.

Is anyone around the Chicago area? I could use some help on a 5spd swap project.
Honestly, I'd rather have a correctly rebuilt auto trans shipped to me. T
