there is less emissions in japan then the US so their engines put out more HP. here in the US there is hella restriction and plus a factory honda motor operates at 80% not full power and then JDM motors are at 100% more flow i think bigger ports cuz JDM B16 VTEC screams and US version can berely hear it....

Alright, gotcha; I mean that's basic logic though, I had a B16A (with mad things in it, almost 185HP, and on the track 1/4 13.6 so it was a very good engine, plus I had it on a 87 HB with some "14 rims Konig Rewind and some times with some "15 GSRzx '98) and I was alwayz wondering why the japoness kid next door (with his Type R; B16 also) alwayzx kept wining on the track and getting my gas money on my way home all the time... now I get it, his was a JDM and my was all hook up, but a USDM...!? thatzx what you saying right...!?

That's the one state that mess's it up for everyone.....If you think about it,if it wasn't for cali. We'd have alot of cars over here that never made it..

tell em about it, living in cali is worse than living in any other state about emission. The emission laws are a lot more strict than any other state, they force us to do a smog check every other year and california cars are restricted to have California Carb legal catalytic converters not just regular carb legal cats :mad

ya JDM is better than USDM, but the JDM STi only 280hp whereas the USDM STi is 300hp, thats the only version i can think of where the USDM has more power than the JDM, but the rest of everything, JDM has more power, JDM h22 vs USDM h22 i believe the JDM h22 has a bit more torque than the USDM h22 that is why everyone gets a JDM H22 plus its also really hard to find a decent USDM H22 that hasn't been abused or has alot of miles on it. if your in cali, you can probably get a full swap for 2400-2600, but i live in CO and the swaps here are 3500-4000

california has the strictest emisions in the world but its not really there fault its because of the way the land is. look how many people live in cali and how many drive now add in the fact that they have all those bowl shaped valleys and what not. the poultion cant escape any where unlike here in florida where it all just goes out to sea. so they have to do something to improve the air quality and thats what they did. carb sucks i know but its something that had to be done

Of course but they should do like chicago did and just put in more trees. More trees equals coolers temps and more "lungs" to filter out the badstuff that is putting a whole in the enviroment. But that a whole nother can of worms. Besides I live in florida...no need to worry about emisions here :bye :clap :clap

i always thought its was because of the octane rating i know in japan they have gas @ like 97 or 99 octane over there while the highest we have here is 93.

octane has nothing to do w/ power.

plus the way they calculate octane is different how the US calculates octane, but their 100 octane is equal to our 93-ish.
