I've had better luck with the low mileage Japanese engines than I have with rebuilders, that might just be my luck though.

Other than them I'd go JDM before rebuilt as well personally.
Finding a good used one and having it resealed is a good option too if you can find a known good used one.

If I were going to buy an import recycled engine, my biggest worry would be the reputation of the shop that's importing the engine. If you've heard good things about them standing behind their product, I say go that route.

you likely will have to use your existing block and junk off your old engine.
Basically take the JDM engine, reseal it, and put on your exhaust and intake.
I got 100K HARD miles out of mine before I blew it up.
