Default JDM "stock" civic engine?

I'm looking at this car, and I asked the guy if the engine is stock (on a 1997 civic ex) and he said it's stock "but it's the JDM engine," what's that mean?































Also, the car has "skunk2 stage 2 clutch and skunk2 cams", is that going to cause engine problems in the future?

Any Asian car that has been "riced out," which this one has, is asking for major trouble down the road. Most, if not all cars like this are driven very hard, modified incorrectly at times, and in essence, dreaded excess across the board.































JDM in the poseur land of rice owners, means "Japanese Domestic Market," which they claim is the Japanese spec'd engine. Most of this crew can barely afford gas in these cars, let alone a JDM engine. When he said that there are "skunk2 stage 2 clutch and skunk2 cams," these are aftermarket parts, and it takes skill to put them in.































Find a different car.

the stock motor that came in your car would have been a D16Y8. You should be able to see the motor code on the block.































If the clutch and cams were installed properly then no it shouldn't cause a problem. The clutch may have been going out and they decided to put an upgraded stage 2 in. And they only put in a "cam" your car is a SOHC. Once again shouldn't be a problem if it was installed properly.































Not really understanding why all the "ricer, or honda haters" even answer questions on here and then continue to give rude accusations about the people that drive hondas, so ignore the first answer please.
