JDM Engine Depot?

I am wanting to purchase a complete TII swap and was wondering if anybody has any experience with JDM Engine Depot?
If they're not good, can anyone suggest another e-tailer which is honest and reliable?

SEARCH and you will find that JDM motors tend to be giant paper weights. you have about a 50% chance of it haveing low compression and needing to be rebuilt

Fair enough.
Than can anybody suggest an e-tailer which does not sell JDM T2's but instead has US motors that are in good working condition?

not to slander anyone but i have dealt with Jdm engine depot before. my engine that i got from them was so so. it had great compression and also blown oil seals. they aren't really different from any other engine importer. luckily for me i got to test my own engine, only because of past business experience. as far as honesty, none of these places really test or guarantee rotary engines. you can probably try japan2LA, he has sold numerous engines to forum members and he tests them all.
