A little bit about us
Foreign Engines has been in business since 1982. We opened as a small local Japanese
engine and transmission importer in Seattle Washington. By providing high quality products
and the best warranty available we've grown to have two locations, one in Washington state, and
one in Idaho. Repeat business is what we've built our reputation on so every customer is
important to us. Don't expect high pressure sales tactics, that's not us. Our sales staff is
friendly and helpful. Give us a call to see if we have what you're looking for!
What's the deal with Japanese import engines?
"JDM" stands for Japanese Domestic Market. These engines were used in Japan before they
were exported to the U.S. The average Japanese driver drives their car 50,000 miles before
turning their vehicle in.
Why only 50,000 miles?
Each car must pass the "Shaken" test. The first test is administered for passenger vehicles
at year 3 and every 2 years after. The car must pass on many different levels : exterior,
speedometer, headlights, exhaust and emissions, suspension and interior. Anything not
meeting the required standard must be repaired. When the cost of repairs outweighs the
value of the car it is exported or recycled. Foreign Engines imports the recycled engines.
