D17A Engine For Sale

JDM Honda D17A Engine

The JDM motto is, “Function over form.” This means that when buying a JDM D17A engine, you can be assured that all the parts on the engine work regardless of how they look.

If you’re new to engine buying, you may wonder what JDM stands for. JDM is an acronym referring to a Japanese domestic engine. Like many car engines, JDMs were initially tested in high-speed racing situations. The “Konjo” road in Osaka, Japan is where JDM engines were first tested. On this long, winding and treacherous highway, people could see as many as 20-30 cars racing at high speeds all at once. An added
danger to speed was how the cars cut in and out of one another’s traffic. Testing the maneuverability of the car and its engine was equally important to how fast it could go.

JDM engines were used in building the Honda’s Civic and Acura brand cars. The JDM was particularly popular with car lovers because it was, and continues to be so easily modified.

Between the years 2001-2005, the Civic contained a JDM D17A engine. The particular specifications of this engine are:

Displacement : 1,668 cc (101 .8 cu in)

Bore and Stroke: 75 x 94.4 mm (3.0 x 3.72 in)

Compression : 9,9:1

Power: 130 hp (97 kW; 132 PS) at 6,300 rpm

Torque: 160 Mm (118 Ib-ft) at 4,800 rpm

Rev-limiter : 7,200 rpm

Valvetrain : SOHC (4 valves per cylinder)

Fuel Control: OBD-2 MPFI


While some of these specs may feel and sound alien, they all describe components within an engine that contribute to high performance.

In an energy-conscious culture, the displacement feature in a car is important. It reveals how much gasoline the engine can burn. This also tells you how much power the engine may have when operating at 100%. In the JDM D17A, the displacement number tells the consumer that it has good gas mileage.

There’s also torque and power to consider. The JDM D17A engine has a torque of 4800 rpm with a power of 6300 rpm. The torque is how flexible, or how much force each gear can exact. The power is the term originally understood by comparing engines to how many horses would it take to get to the same speed. At 130 hp, a buyer can expect decent speed with the JDM D17A.

Power and torque combined are how-how fast, or slow, the car feels when you’re driving it. In the JDM D17A engine, you’ll feel a certain amount of speed along with control, which makes for an enjoyable driving

A higher torque means better acceleration when the car is in gear. This is great to know if you drive in an
area with lots of hills. If you’re a highway driver where accelerating to pass slower vehicles is a common
condition of your daily drive, a high torque may be important, especially when shifting gears.

Overall you will find that the JDM D17A engine continues to be a durable engine which delivers solid performance. It
is reasonably priced and remains a popular consideration for car enthusiasts.
