For many years, Honda, Toyota, and Subaru models have held top 30 spots in America’s most loved cars. Demand is high for Japanese engines. American owners of Accords, Civics, Camrys, and Tundras tend to replace their engines with rebuilt rather than new ones rather or making the major expenditure on a new vehicle when the motor becomes worn. Many people look for engines imported from Japan because the Japanese engines are famous for being well maintained while in use.
Celebrated Japanese Engines for Honda
Honda Accord and Civic have been popular in the United States for quite some time, but the CRV is rapidly gaining ground. As such Honda’s B, D, F and K series motors are in high demand. VTEC, pioneered and first used in 1989 by Honda, is available with the D (1.5 to 1.7L), F (2.0 to 2.3L), K (2.0 to 2.4 L), and R (1.6 and 1.8L) series engines. Since Japan taxes vehicles on displacement, VTEC was a way of increasing the 4 cylinder motor’s horsepower by using dual cams and variable valve timing and lift electronic control to improve the motor’s efficiency.
The most popular Japanese engine imports for Honda Civics include the D series D15B VTEC and D17A VTEC and the K series K20A, while the Accord is the F series including the F22B VTEC and the K24A. The K24A is also a popular engine in the CRV.
Favored Japanese Engines for Toyota
Toyota’s Camry has taken spots in the top 5 best-selling cars in the United States for many years, with Corolla, RAV4, Prius, and Tacoma in the top 30. Toyota engines are durable and reliable, allowing Americans to move about on their daily business with little effort. It’s no wonder that people will replace their aged Toyota motors with a rebuilt Japanese engine instead of buying a new vehicle.
Camry’s power plants range from a 1.8 L inline 4 cylinder to a powerful 3.0 L V6. The highly prized 2GR-FE Camry motor is also used in other models such as the popular RAV4. Corolla engines are typically Toyota’s inline 4 cylinder engine in 1.5 to 1.8 L displacement. Tundras are driven by 3.4 L V6 up to a 5.7L V8, while the RAV4 uses 2.0 to 3.5 L displacement motors.
