Japanese Engines- the most dependable motors that give good value for money !
Why should we buy Japanese Engines instead of buying from Junk Yards ? are they any special ? why do they last long ? what are the pros & cons ?
Sept. 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Japan is a small country but has progressed more than big super powers. They excel in automotive industry. Japan home to one of the largest vehicle manufacturers in the world like Honda Motors, Toyota Motor Corporation, Nissan Motors etc. Toyota right now is one of the largest manufacturers in the world producing more models in the world, each year than any other manufacturer. Wel.. we are not here to talk about the greatness of these manufacturers, we want to prove a point why Japanese Engines that are imported from Japan are better than tired engines, with high mileage available at junk yards in United States.
We forget the basics. We know the distance from our home to our office, approx 20-50 miles on an average but in Japan people barely use their vehicles on a weekday because they have a well connected subway & bulllet train network iin Japan. Parking is expensive so they have to rent parking space near work which costs around $1000 per month. Moreover shaken requirements ( Shaken here means vehicle registration)
Therefore it is clear that we all drive around 40,000-50,000 miles in a year in the U.S compared to weekend driving with minimal of driving on weekdays plus they discontinue driving after 5 years max results in vehicles with low mileage Engines & Transmissions.
Bottomline is engines from Japan are the lowest mileage and better quality than used engines available in United States. This is a fact.
Pros & Cons: We already spoke about the pros of buying a Japanese engine but the cons are minimal. Since Japanese Engines were made for vehicle produced by Honda, Toyota, Nissan etc in Japan for that market, there are some minor changes required. The most important and significant one is to change intake & exhaust manifold to the one from U.S from old engine in order to pass emissions. In some other motors for example Toyota Camry engine Japan had more 3SFE 2.0 ltr engine while U.S had 5SFE for Camrys, although both these engines are same but it is required to adjust engine mount bracket.
The last step is to find the best importer of Japanese engines who understands pulse of an engine. Find the one who tests every mechanical aspect of the Japanese Engine, we recommend http://www.usedjapanmotors.com
Hope we all understand now that only Japanese Engines imported from Japan offer good value for money since they last long !
