It's hard to mention talk about any aspect of import or Japanese sports car performance without discussing JDM engine swaps. JDM stands for Japanese Domestic Market and it's a great source for engines and transmissions to swap into your import vehicle. Whereas many of the incredible Japanese supercars and engines made their mark in the 80s and 90s, these unfortunately never made it to US shores. JDM engine swaps are easier than ever with the ever increasing choices of JDM engine importers out there.
Many of these importing companies have a large selection and inventory. Being able to [pick out](http://my.prostreetonline.com/2014/10/23/how-to-buy-a-jdm-imported-motor/) the best engine or transmission of choice is great, whether you are modifying your car or just repairing it. Because these are used components, it can really be a much cheaper alternative than buying a new engine, shortblock or transmission from your dealer. If you are modifying your car these JDM engine swaps can really give you a far better base for modifications than your factory engine ever could.
If you are in the market for an replacement engine or transmission, here's 10 of the most popular and best [JDM engine swaps](http://my.prostreetonline.com/2016/02/03/jdm-engine-buying-guide-getting-best-deal/) out there for you to choose from.
When it comes to coffee beans, I am most definitely what is known lovingly as a "coffee snob." Having found that organic coffee is the best-tasting, I have put together a fun list of [best organic coffee beans](http://goodyfor.me/category/beverages/coffee/best-organic-coffee-beans/) - the ones that are generally the most popular that are also getting the best reviews in 2015 - the ones that even I would drink (haha!). If you're a "coffee snob" like me, I think you will find this list very helpful - the "best of" for 2016! :)
(A bit of a "PS" on this list includes additional lists, reviews and resources.)
