Amusing Photography...

My compulsion towards the parts of the Japanese Domestic Market is not based on a personal assessment of performance superiority. It is about design, quality, and attention to detail. Likely my biggest obsession of the industry, Power House Amuse is quite possibly the superlative of JDM parts. Hardly boring or run-of-the-mill, the products that come out of their facility in Chiba are not simply functional components to be admired momentarily pre-installation only to be forsaken shortly after brusque acknowledgment of any performance benefit or gain. Every Amuse part contains an all-too-real element of genuine automotive artistry.

  1. Always enjoy your writeups Bill; I heard sometime ago that Password JDM makes an inferior product compared to other great companies focusing on aftermarket CF products like their intakes, aerodynamics like Wings, Canards and pictured diffusers. And to think the owner of this S2000 spent big coin for a R&D work of art in the Amuse exhaust; but he cheapens out on the PSJDM diffuser when he could have gone Mugen or Voltex for example...

    Sorry for rambling on and keep on keeping it real!


  2. Thanks, Freddy...

    No apology necessary. I have actually heard the same of PWJDM products. Although, my initial reaction to the above-pictured photograph was, "What a shame to cover up that beautiful exhaust!" Ha... No, but on a serious note, I know what you mean. I cannot speak from personal experience, as I have never owned any PWJDM products, but, as I'm sure you're aware, they are not a Japanese company. 90% of their products are produced in their California facility. Is that a direct commentary on their quality? I don't know. Not necessarily, as there are some reputable, quality parts out there from non-Japanese companies and manufacturers. Nonetheless, I do agree with you; there are some great (read: better) JDM diffuser options for this particular platform.

    Again, thanks for weighing in...
