Ultimate List of Japanese Engine & Transmission Importers

top 10 jdm engine importers

The number of companies importing Japanese JDM engines, transmissions and parts has exploded over the last 12 years. When I first got into the business back in 2001 there was less than 10 in North America. Today there are well over 60 of them.

I have compiled a list of over 60 importers located in the USA and Canada to help in your search for buying an imported engine.

Please note, I do not endorse any of these companies, they are simply a list I compiled from my time in the business and by searching Google. I’ve included their company name, website, location (City, State), if free shipping is offered and warranty information.

Posted by Hans Desjarlais

After accidentally locking himself in a scrapped '85 Renault for several hours at the age of 5 years old, Hans developed a love/hate relationship with cars which eventually became an obsession. Right out of high school Hans started his first business importing and selling Japanese engines. After selling the business in 2008, he launched Import Insider to obsessively cover the auto industry and offer advice and tips to import car enthusiasts.

  1. Hans,
    Great info.

    I’m planning on a trip to France, Italy and Spain this spring and want to purchase at least 1 pre 1966 Citroen HY vans to bring back to Oregon. Any special advise you can give me would be most helpful.

    Happy Holidays
