    Going to be buying a couple JDM motors this spring. We had a go-to at the dealership, but I'm looking to shop around a little. Any recommendations?

    All I can say is, avoid JDMEnginesCorp on eBay. The SR20DET redtop I bought from them was a total mess, and the previous owner had obviously hit a tree or something, because the engine had sucked a chunk of the intercooler end-tank into the intake manifold, plus the oil had never been changed, it was a gelatinous black sludge. After opening the block to find all this out, JDMEC said my warranty was null and void because, quote "You should have just installed it in the car as is and tried to start it. Opening the engine voided the warranty"

    I remember your horror story. Thanks for the name of the company.

    They all have caveats about warranties on performance engines, but I'm just looking for low mileage stock replacements, so hopefully it'll go better.
