    Well 99% of all the parts are interchangable. They are basicly the exact same engine but the JDM version just have a little more agressive piston and intake manifod.

    i'm a fan of usdm myself- mostly because you have a record of it. you can run a carfax on it and see where it was when the car was crashed, exact mileage and so on. with jdm, you take a risk- and but a lot of trust into your dealer. but, jdm is usually cheaper, and more readily availble for a lot of motors.

    check out out swap section in general info on JDM vs USDM motors. from their, make your own educated decision
