STC Engines Commemorates 31 Years Selling JDM Engines in America

STC Engines, the Soshin Trade Corporation, has recently celebrated its 31st anniversary of selling JDM engines in the United States. “JDM” stands for “Japanese Domestic Market.”

STC Engines, the Soshin Trade Corporation, has recently celebrated its 31st anniversary of selling JDM engines in the United States. “JDM” stands for “Japanese Domestic Market.” The company has brought engines that were originally in Japanese domestic market cars to America for more than 30 years.

The parent company, Soshin Corporation Limited, was formed in Yokohama, Japan in 1982. Recycling auto parts was the primary source of income for the company. That led naturally into selling used JDM transmissions and engines to countries worldwide.

The Soshin Trade Corporation was opened in South Gate, CA in 1988. Since its inception, the location sells engines and transmissions to distributors, mechanics, repair and body shops, retail establishments as well as wholesale customers.

“We knew there was a market for JDM products in the 80s, but we could never have imagined how great the demand was. It’s an honor to bring these engines to a new customer base, who can utilize them for years and years to come. We’re grateful for the decades we’ve provided JDM parts, and we look forward to several decades to come,” said Koki Akiya, Owner of STC Engines.

STC Engines continually brings in new used JDM motors. As of this writing, its newest engines include a used JDM 01-05 Honda D15B VTEC Coil Pack, a used JDM 89-94 Nissan Maxima VG30 FWD SOHC 3.0L engine, a used JDM 07-12 Nissan Versa MR18DE 1.8L engine, as well as a used Toyota Prius Hybrid Engine. They receive new engines often.
