JDM means it was made for the Japanese Domestic MarketUSDM means it was made for the United States Domestic Marketbesides the obvious Right Hand Drive (RHD) Left Hand Drive (LHD) difference and the kilometers per hour and miles per hour its this.jdm=rhd usdm= lhdjdm=lsd tranny usdm= non-lsd (not limited slip)jdm= front clip ok front end. spoiler usdm= smaller spoiler 5 lug usdm = 4 lug (except type r) = kilometers usdm = mph

JDM engines do have more power.Japan always have more power than the cars in the American market.This is because they have less strict rules with pollution.JDM engines are really illegal, but people buy them anyway to get the extra 10-25HP.Plus, when you buy a JDM engine from, they have less than 60,000 miles.Also, it is not recommended to turbo an engine with over 60,000 miles. Buying a JDM engine allows you to turbocharge.People usually buy JDM engines when there stock engines have very high mileage and die.
