We are a Multinational Company based in Houston, Tx. We started on a shoe-string in 1997. We have grown considerably since then. Our Houston head office and distribution franchises in Los Angeles-California, Miami-Florida, San Francisco-California, Atlanta-Georgia, San Antonio, Dallas-Fort Worth & Austin-Texas ship over 2500 Japanese engines in a year.
We specialize in JDM Japanese diesel and gasoline Engines, Transmissions and Industrial diesel engines.Our state-of-the-art machine shop builds over hundred engines a month. This has been our core business for last twelve years. We have pioneered the way we test our Used Japanese engines and transmissions. This has been our secret password of growth. We carry a large inventory of JDM Engines & JDM Transmissions for almost all Japanese (J.D.M) models like ACURA, HONDA, TOYOTA, LEXUS, NISSAN, MAZDA, MITSUBISHI, SUZUKI SUBARU, SCION & ISUZU. Our aim is to carry wide variety of engines & transmissions for all Japanese models under one roof. In an effort to acquire Low Mileage Engines we mostly import from Japan. We have been importing from Japan since 1997. We have good relations with Japanese manufacturers like Toyota & Honda whom we have been dealing with since 1997. Japanese engines & transmissions are shipped directly from Japan from low mileage vehicles.
All JDM ENGINES & Transmissions are hand-picked by us in Japan. WE IMPORT ONLY LOW MILEAGE ENGINES WITH APPROX 40,000-50,000 MILES, this is possible because we have our agents all over Japan who buy low mileage vehicles from Insurance & Govt. agencies on regular basis. Our entire stock is Ultra-5 TESTED at our facility in HOUSTON after we receive the container from Japan. Ultra-5 Test is our comprehensive testing procedure.
Japan is home to ACURA , HONDA, TOYOTA,LEXUS, NISSAN, MAZDA, MITSUBISHI, SUZUKI & SUBARU and Japanese economy greatly relies on financial health of these companies. Therefore Japanese Government applies strict rules that force Japanese consumers to discontinue using their vehicle within 5 years. Therefore vehicles in Japan are used for only 80,000-100,000 kms OR 40,000-60,000 miles approx. It is very expensive to own a car in Japan. Gasoline, Highway tolls, Labor, cost of repairs & insurance cost up to 4 times more than US. One needs parking permit before they purchase a car, average parking in a commercial area is over $500 per month. Japanese vehicles have less miles in comparison to the U.S. So, a 10 year old car in Japan might have 50,000 miles on the engine compared to 150,000 on U.S engine. There are no after-market parts, very few body shops and no salvage yards in Japan. It is not uncommon to spend $150/day to use a car. Most people use their cars on weekends & take shin-kansen (bullet train) or subway to work. This makes sense because one can go from Osaka to Tokyo by bullet train for $100 without any hassle of parking. Moreover all Japanese cars go through a stringent bi-annual inspection called SHAKEN. The cost of complying with these tests can run as much as 30% of the vehicle value. Cars with minor body damage are considered unsafe. There are few cars over 6 years old in service. Cars are recycled early. Compound these costs with propensity of Japanese consumers to drive only the latest models. The result is vehicles with tremendously low mileage are recycled. Vehicles in Japan suffer quick depreciation as cost of repairs is extremely high

Our testing capabilities and experties helps us separate good Japanese engines from bad. We work very hard and acquire JDM Engines and Transmissions only after they pass our rigorous testing and inspections. Therefore we never run out of stock. We make sure we have appropriate quantities for each model. We sell our engines with 6 months limited warranty and transmissions with 3 months limited warranty.
All this makes it difficult for other local vendors like Salvage Yards to beat our price & quality. This is because we work 24/7. We sell during the day & our agents in Japan are constantly collecting good engines and transmissions for our next container when it is night time in the US, as it is 9:00 AM in Japan when it is 5:00 pm in Houston. Also we understand requirements of our customers in U.S & Canada and for this reason we carry a huge stock of Japanese Mini Truck engines or "K" Trucks like engines for Suzuki Carry, Honda Acty, Diahatsu Hijet, Mitsubishi Minicab & Subaru Sambar. We also have Manual 4WD transmissions for Engines like Suzuki Carry, Honda Acty, Diahatsu Hijet, Mitsubishi Minicab & Subaru Sambar. We carry over 5000 Used Japanese Engines & Transmissions for Japanese vehicles in stock. All fully tested & low mileage.
